Whilst wireless and fibre are generally the preferred choices by many to access the internet, the former is prohibitively expensive and the latter is not available in all areas. These constraints are causing a number of individuals and companies to realise the enormous benefits of using the extensive cellular networks in South Africa.
Fixed LTE is credited as being the fastest wireless technology for mobile devices and smart phones for good reason. The fact that it uses radio waves gives it a better penetration and wider coverage, that also extends to remote areas. It is also extremely affordable.
To use the Fixed LTE network, all you need is a router so that you can connect to your cellular service provider’s network. This router is portable meaning there are no installation costs; there is immediate connectivity and should you move, all you need to do is contact WizeFly so that we can remote reconfigure the device instantly.
