FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

F.A.Q.

Q: Is it Wireless?

A: Yes. The signal is wirelessly transmitted from one of our nearby towers to a fixed receiver on your house. From there we run an ethernet cable to the inside of your house that will plug into a Wi-fi router provided by MontanaSky that will give you wireless internet inside your house.

Q: Does SkyConnect require that I can see your tower?

A: Yes. We call that line of sight. To ensure the best service, we must install the receiver dish in a location that has a clear unobstructed view of our tower.

Q: Does SkyConnect service require I mount something to my house?

A: Yes. A standard install will require the technician to mount an 18” round dish that will be the receiver of the wireless signal from our tower. From the receiver there will be an ethernet cable to the inside of your house that will plug into a Wi-fi router provided by MontanaSky. Our installation technician will make sure all cables are secured to the house neatly and that there are no unsightly obstructions.

Q: How much area does the Wi-fi signal cover?

A: It really depends on your floorplan. Our Wi-fi router will generally cover a medium sized house. We recommend placing the router in the area where internet is most heavily used or in the center of the home.

If there are areas of your home that the signal is too weak or does not reach, we can offer customized full house solutions to guarantee the best experience in all corners of your home.

Q: Does snow or rain affect the signal?

A: No. The frequency on our receivers is in a band not affected by precipitation unlike Satellite TV which operates in the higher frequency bands and can be affected by rain and snow.

Q: Will you come to my house first to check to see if I’m able to get service?

A: Yes. MontanaSky provides a free site survey to verify that you have line of site to one of our towers and that the signal is strong enough to your residence to provide great service!

Q: How fast is it?

A: Depending on your area, we offer up to 50 Mbps download speed on wireless.  However, the correct question to ask is: how many other people will be sharing the same internet facilities as me?  Cable companies offer very fast advertised speeds, but they operate on a party line.  That means that everyone in a neighborhood is sharing the same bandwidth.  That is why some users experience Netflix buffering even on a 100 Mbps+ connection.  The phone company has similar issues being able to consistently deliver the speeds they are selling you.

We work hard to ensure our wireless transmitters on the tower are not overloaded.  We do an audit 2x a month and upgrade areas that are getting full with newer equipment that has higher capacity.  This means that even if our advertised speed is lower than other companies, your experience should be comparable or better on SkyConnect.

Q: I am seasonal, can I shut off my service in the winter?

A: We understand that many customers only need their connection for part of the year.  We do offer a “snowbird” mode that will suspend your service for $25/Month for up to 6-months a year.  We can re-activate your service at any time, but do require a one-month minimum (you cannot just turn your service on for a weekend).  If you are under a 24-month contract, months that are on vacation hold do not count towards completing your agreement.

If you have a VoIP line, it is $5.00 a month (in addition to the $25) to keep your number. 

If you require “minimal” services for an alarm system or remote monitoring, you can downgrade to a lower speed package while you are away.  See our website for current prices in your area.
