Fast Internet for your home office and in the field.
How Miles Out Internet Works
Similar to wireless cellphones, Miles Out Internet is beamed directly to your home business via a signal from a local area cellular towers and not from satellites in space. This is what makes Miles Out Internet available just about anywhere. There’s no need to worry about landlines or phone lines. Miles Out Internet is faster than satellite, cost effective and an excellent alternative to DSL and slower satellite services.
Here’s how wireless internet from Miles Out works:
1. You’re on your laptop or tablet and you click on your favorite website. The signal goes to your Miles Out modem (or through your router first if you have one) and then through a short cable to the antenna outside your home (if required). Not all areas require an outdoor antenna.
2. The signal is transmitted to a cellular towers in your neighborhood and not 22,500 miles away in the sky.
3. The connection to the internet remains strong during poor weather conditions because the service is on the ground.
4. The modem delivers the wireless signal from Miles Out back into the main home via ethernet or wireless wifi technologies.
This all happens at the speed of light, giving you download speeds of up to 40 Mbps in some areas. The signal goes back and forth in a fraction of a second, allowing you to get online, stream music and videos and send large emails quickly and smoothly. It’s as simple as plugging in a modem to the power outlet on the wall.
Miles Out Outdoor Wireless Antenna
The antenna for your Miles Out Internet is smaller than a satellite TV antenna dish. The Miles Out antenna is easy to install on your roof or the side of your home. While you do not require an external antenna in most cases, it will greatly improve your signal quality and internet download speeds.

Miles Out Internet service comes from local cellular towers powered by the North America 4G and LTE USA network. No matter if you are in a moving RV or a fixed building location you will always have a strong connection to the internet regardless of weather conditions.
Satellite Internet vs. Miles Out Internet
There is a tendency to think satellite and the service Miles Out Online; Cellular Wireless Internet provides, are the same. In fact, they share some common concepts but the actual service delivered is very different.
Satellite service requires the equipment at your location to “talk” to a satellite in orbit. That means the wireless signal needs to travel great lengths, typically about 22,236 miles! That long distance is the main issue with satellite service. When a link is that long, heavy rain storms can cause the service to intermittently cut out. Plus, that distance creates a gap between ISP’s latency and throughput.
Latency is how long it takes to send a signal over the link measured in milliseconds. Throughput is a term used to define the measure of the capacity of the link such as 10Mbps. Even at the speed of light, which wireless travels at, there is an inherent “satellite delay” with satellite Internet service that fixed wireless doesn’t have.
Anyone who has seen live news reports on satellite TV has experienced this. Imagine every time you pull up a new web page or email and experiencing that “satellite delay”. That would get old pretty quick. Satellite’s latency, or perceived speed is almost 20 times slower than a land based service such as Miles Out Online. This is because the Miles Out Online signal is traveling a fraction of the miles compared to satellite links.
The other main issue with satellite Internet are data caps. Data caps are when the service provider either slows your connection or charges you for extra usage of data. When evaluating a satellite service, make sure you check their terms of service because satellite services generally have the most strict terms of usage in the industry. Their data caps are low and they can vary depending on the time of the day.
Data caps are a very real concern if you are watching Netflix or other streaming video. According to Netflix, an HD stream can use up to 2.8GB of data per hour. If you have a 10GB monthly data cap, that transfer limit can be reached within roughly 3.5 hours. Then you are paying expensive overage fees, potentially up to $15 per each additional 1GB.
Inclement weather can affect satellite service. It is common for very overcast or stormy days to cause problems for satellite television, sometimes causing a loss in picture quality and sometimes causing a lost signal altogether. The same problem occurs with satellite Internet service. Your Internet connection will be affected by bad weather not only above the satellite dish in your house, but also in the area of the satellite operator’s hub.
Advantages of Miles Out Internet
Miles Out Internet provides land-based links that are short connections, generally less than 10 miles compared to a 22,000 mile satellite link. Miles Out connections do not have a “satellite delay” and are about 20x more responsive to clicks or page changes. We do not have cut off data caps which can either significantly increase your costs or limit what you use your internet connection for.
In terms of the service delivered, Miles Out Internet wireless wins in all categories:
