Business owners with offices outside of Midtown and Wall Street are likely to find the performance of their business Internet to be less than optimal unless they take advantage of high speed fixed wireless broadband.
Most people are surprised to discover that 90 percent of the 132,000 commercial buildings in Manhattan lack high-speed, reliable business broadband services. Business owners outside of Wall Street and Midtown deal with the challenges of slow Internet speeds because ISPs do not want to incur the high expense of fiber optic cables. According to Crain’s New York, running fiber optic cable from a manhole to a building costs $200,000 alone. At the same time, high latency and slow Internet speeds hamper the performance of cloud-based data services, as well as business applications, VoIP, and other business collaboration tools. What can commercial property owners do to provide the high-speed broadband services their tenants need for their current and future business applications?
Advances in Fixed Wireless Technology Provide Optimal Performance
For owners of commercial spaces who cannot convince an ISP to run fiber optic cables to their buildings, fixed wireless Internet offers the opportunity to attract new high value tenants, such as tech startups, that require high-speed business class broadband. Fixed wireless systems transfer data at gigabit speeds using radio waves transferred to roof top antennas. Once the data has reached its target, Ethernet fiber cables carry it into the building. The speed connection with fixed wireless Internet is as fast as Fiber connection and offers businesses better performance and reliability than fiber optic cable Internet services.
