CloudConnexions can now provide direct fiber internet to your home or business. Anywhere that currently has available GPON fiber. Remember this differs from dedicated fiber which is currently the “best” internet. GPON fiber is 2nd best. Dedicated fiber is much more expensive and generally out of rach for most starting @ $500/Month however, GPON fiber starts at just over $100/Month.

Lets talk about bandwidth…  Some of you think that what you hear advertised as “what you need” as the truth…  I find this pretty funny as this is so far from the truth its insane. Lets start off by saying most of you don’t need 1Gbps (1 Gigabit) connection speed. Sure if you don’t mind paying for services you will most likely rarely if never use then go ahead. Here is the example that I use…  if you have a 1Gbps connection that is 1000Mbps (megabits per second), most of you respond by saying YES BUT! all my kids are streaming TV online and thats fine but HD Streaming only uses about 6Mbps so I once told a customer WOW you have 166 kids. Well thats how many streams you should be able to watch with 1Gbps. Lots of people still get by with 25 or 50Mbps thats in the download direction but the upload is usually less than 10 so thats not always great. I suggest to all that 100×100 or 150x150Mbps is more than most will use.

What is 4G, 5G, LTE WiFi5, WiFi6….   anybody know the difference?
Lots of people mix these up and its really hard to diferenciate the difference if you are not a tech.
4G, 5G and LTE are “G”enerations of cellular service. Cell companies keep improving many aspects like latency (network delay) and speed. Obviously the cell companies want you to spend the most for the “latest & greatest” but in reality most people dont need this on their phones. Services like 5G will benefit things like self driving cars where really low latency is important for split second descisions.

WiFi5 aka “ac”, WiFi6 aka “ax” are wireless connection standards for connecting devices such as laptops and phones to your home and business router.  Now here’s where it gets tricky..  there is also 5G which is a frequency band used for WiFi and this has nothing to do with 5G the 5th Generation of cell networks. 5G for WiFi is actually 5Ghz and was an extension of frequencies made available from the government (for free) to use for home wireless networks.  Those 3 channels (yes there are really only 3 non overlapping) became really busy so the 5Ghz band was opened to the public with more channels to use for WiFi home and business networks. This band has also has also become congested and finally the government release almost the entire 6Ghz band to use for these networks.

Did I confuse you more…. ?  well I could go on for 10 pages but if you really want to know more buy me lunch and we can disuss it.
