It is a high-speed (Broadband) Internet access medium. Air Fiber Internet uses wireless signals to transmit Internet service to subscribers' computers at speeds that far exceed those provided by traditional telephone-line based Internet services.
Dial-up: is much slower
ISDN & DSL: have slower speeds and higher user costs
CABLE: is much more expensive to implement, has a distance limitation. Does not exist in Las Vegas.
SATELITE: has slower speeds and higher user costs.
Air Fiber: Is full duplex (faster up and download speeds), does not take up a phone line. Air Fiber is always on and always fast. Enjoy the freedom of connecting to the internet without cables!
Speeds provided by Air Fiber at DesertGate Internet are fast and range from 3-200mbs - depending on the plan and quality of the link.
No. There are no satellites involved in DesertGate Air Fiber Internet system. Air Fiber Internet is what is called "terrestrial Air Fiber" meaning that the radio signals are generated and transmitted within the earth's atmosphere. As a result, Air Fiber Internet does not suffer from the problems that satellite Internet access does, such as interference from snow on the antenna, or high latency due to the long distances that satellite radio signals have to travel between the earth and the orbiting satellite.
No. Air Fiber is a fixed connection from line of site of building to our tower.

Air Fiber Internet is available in 90% of Las Vegas. There are a few locations where it will not be available due to the fact that Air Fiber Internet service requires a direct line of sight between some point on or around your location to one of our repeater towers.

We'll schedule a free site survey to test your location and make a determination on whether it is suited for Air Fiber Internet service.
