    Always-On Wireless Internet
    Wireless Internet Access uses high-frequency radio technology to transmit and receive data to and from your home or business. There's no telephone line and no dialing; you're always connected. A small radio transceiver is mounted on your home or office building that establishes the connection with one of our broadcast locations.

    A network cable is run from the radio transceiver to a small power injector in your home or office. You simply plug the network connector on the power injector into your computer's network interface card and you're on the air! You can even connect your entire home or office network to the Internet using the same radio transceiver.

    We realize that many homeowners associations are concerned about the appearance of external antennas. Fox Valley Internet has selected a radio transceiver that is so small (11.75"H X 3.4"W X 1.1"D) it's hardly noticeable. In addition, in the interest of ensuring that broadband Internet access is made available to the masses, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has passed a ruling that allows wireless Internet access antennas to be installed even in areas where homeowners association's rules prevent other types of antennas. A copy of the FCC document detailing this ruling is available at http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html.
