Dutch company promises “wired internet” via wireless connection




The Dutch company to WirelessXS promises ‘wired internet’ offering for homes in outlying areas. This is done via a wireless connection, a channel provider sends a signal directed to a dish in which a router is connected.

The transmitters of WirelessXS have a range of five to ten kilometers. The first station will be installed sitting on a KPN mast near Pijnacker, says director André Kalsbeek against Tweakers. The used technology would offer speeds up to 500Mbit / s, but subscriptions have a speed of 50Mbit / s or 100Mbit / s, down as well as up. There are no data limits and rates are not yet known.

WirelessXS shrouds himself in mystery about the “revolutionary” new technology it uses. Kalsbeek describes it as a “mix of LTE, wimax and wifi. It involves signals in the 5 GHz band, for which no license is required. It is possible that it comes to LTE can also use a variant of the standard 4G, KPN, Vodafone, T-Mobile and Tele2 in the Netherlands.

For reception of the signals WirelessXS used a dish, which assembles the provider with people at home. Via a cable, the signal goes to a conventional Wi-Fi router, which can then provide Internet devices. The solution is similar to 4G Internet for home, including offering KPN and T-Mobile.

The new-fangled provider can not many people join. With sufficient interest from a region there will be an information evening and put WirelessXS stations close down for the reception of signals. WirelessXS should provide an alternative for places where internet is unavailable or hardly fast.
