What is Wireless Broadband

Wireless broadband uses a small digital microwave antenna on the outside of your property to bring you the same ultra fast internet experience as fibre and VDSL broadband.  Because it doesn't use fibre or copper telephone lines, Ionica's wireless broadband is available in areas not serviced by other providers.

The outdoor antenna connects your property to the Ionica network at speeds up to 200mbps.  Unlike satellite and other wireless services, our wireless broadband is not affected by weather and is designed to give a consistent and reliable connection all the time.

To get ultra fast wireless at your house, Ionica transmits an internet signal from the base-station closest to your property which is picked up by the antenna on your roof.  This antenna then connects to your home router and distributes the internet to all your household devices such as computers, smartphones, tablets, laptops, TV's, etc.


The main difference between wireless broadband and wired broadband (such as ADSL, VDSL and Fibre) is the method used to connect from your home router out to the internet.  Wireless uses the ions in the air, whilst the others use a cable dug or strung to your property.
