The WINC Wireless Modem connects you or your office to the Internet in one of several ways:

Connect the wireless modem to your local area network (LAN) to provide your entire office with high-speed Internet access. Connect the wireless modem to your laptop or desktop computer for hassle-free and portable high speed Internet access within our coverage area. Additional areas can be served by connecting the wireless modem to your LAN, desktop or laptop computer using a small, easy-to-mount antenna outside your building or on a window pointed towards one of WINC's base station antennas.

What about bad weather?

No problem. Unlike some other wireless technologies, WINC utilizes proven Industry standard CDMA technology, similar to that of commonly used cellular phones, that is unaffected by rain, fog, even snow. And our network is monitored continuously to ensure reliable service.

If it's portable, is it secure?

To help keep your connection secure, we've built in multiple layers of authentication:

Our automated system allows only registered users on our network. WINC service requires a proprietary wireless modem available only to WINC subscribers. A double authentication system first identifies each wireless modem on the network using a unique serial code, then registers the user on the network using a confidential user ID and password.

As with any Internet connection, wired or wireless, WINC recommends that users take additional precautions to secure their networks by installing appropriate safeguards, such as firewalls.

How is WINC different from 802.11(Hot Spots or WiFi)?

WINC differs from 802.11 in several critical ways:


WINC service is available up to 12 miles or more from a base station. 802.11 "hot spots" were designed as an alternative to a wired Ethernet Local Area Network connections operating at distances of approximately 300 feet.


Accessing WINC's propriety network requires the authentication of each wireless modem using a unique serial code coupled with user registration via user ID and password. 802.11 networks have become popular "hotspots" designed for public, non-authenticated access to the Internet and generally speaking, do not require, user ID or password and use "off the shelf" non-proprietary wireless access cards.
