Q. What is Gigabit Internet ?
A. Gigabit Internet is NewWave’s newest, ultra-fast Internet service. NewWave’s network has been upgraded to gigabit speeds capable of up to 1,000Mbps download and up to 50Mbps upload. Gigabit Internet is $125/month and includes a 1,200GB Data Plan.
Q. Who can get it?
A. NewWave is rolling out Gigabit Internet nationwide to our residential customers. All neighborhoods in a Gigabit community can get this service — we’re not limiting service to specific areas. We’re working hard to upgrade your area.
Q. What kind of wired speeds will I get?
A. We’re confident you’ll love Gigabit speeds. However, Gigabit Internet service may be faster than your computer and network’s capability. Old equipment and connections often run at speeds slower than a gigabit. Customers who have optimum hardware and connections should expect wired speed tests in excess of 500Mbps on a NewWave’s speed test site.
Q. What kind of WiFi speeds will I get?
A. The speeds of our Gigabit Internet service are greater than what today’s WiFi systems can deliver. The speeds you’ll actually receive vary based on the type of WiFi protocol (G/N/AC), the device being used to access the Internet, and the distance between the WiFi antenna and your device.
Samples of the maximum speeds certain devices can obtain via WiFi:
|Iphone 4, 4S, Galaxy S3||32Mbps|
|Iphone 5, 5s, 5C, Galaxy S4||90Mbps|
|Iphone 6, 6S, Galaxy S5, S6||200Mbps|
|Ipad Air,Air Pro, Mini 2,3,4||180Mbps|
|Windows PC (2012 Mfg Year)||180 – 270Mbps|
|MacBook Pro (2011 – 2012 Year)||270Mbps|
Q. How is this service being delivered?
