How it works
Kingston Online’s wireless broadband solution incorporates towers which are supplied Internet transit via high-speed backhaul routers to our central network. None of our solution uses high-latency satellite transit or high speed DSL solutions designed for low priority retail markets as in the case of some market competitors. KOS Broadband Wireless is Internet access done right.
KOS provides the customer with a total solution which includes the hardware required for the service and an installation component that takes the guesswork out of the process. KOS installs the following for each customer:
- High-gain reception dish antenna (if required)
- Wireless broadband Subscriber Module
- Up to 20 metres of outdoor network cabling ($3 per additional metre)
- Mounting brackets as required
Our installers bring the network connection directly to a designated demarc position in your home or business, just as the phone company does with its service. The customer then will be required to make available a computer to test with and configure.
Once configuration and installation is complete, the customer will be able to receive signal from one of KOS’ towers and access the Internet as if they were using it over a high speed line of some other sort. Latency should be under 50ms in most cases, which is suitable for online gaming, voice over IP and other applications that require low latency.
