Spectrulink offers internet service primarily through the use of terrestrial fixed wireless systems, or through the use of fiber optic connections. These services are subject to availability that is geographically limited. Services can be symmetrical or asymmetrical in nature. We provide a range of services for residential and business connections. Common speeds and plan data limits are described above in the throttling and Data Usage sections.
As detailed below, speeds are dependent on my different factors- some of which are technology deployed for the customer connection. For example, terrestrial fixed wireless speeds can be impacted by wireless interference that may or may not be within Spectrulink's control or ability to identify and resolve. Other factors: such as the number of devices connected to a customer’s router, radio interference within the home, network congestion, received signal level, tree growth, path obstructions, network congestion, and other factors can also impact performance.
Spectrulink designs and provisions its network to ensure all of its customers can enjoy the speeds to which they subscribe; however, Spectrulink does not guarantee that any particular customer will achieve the subscribed speed 100% of the time. No internet service provider can guarantee a particular speed at all times. Spectrulink advertises its speeds as “up to” speeds based on a specific level for tier of service to which a customer subscribes, and this is on a best effort.
The “Actual” speed that a customer will experience while using the internet depends on a variety of conditions, many of which are out of Spectrulink’s control.
While it is impossible to list all conditions that can affect the speed of internet service, a few are listed below:
There are several commercial products out on the market to measure both throughput and latency, Speedtest is one of these products. When running a speed test, remember that the speed you are getting reflects Spectrulink’s network along with the network the packets cross to get to the speed test site. Usually, there is an option for selecting different servers that will be tested during the setup of this test, you should select more than one server when running a speed test to get an average of the speed you are getting.
Also remember, that while running a speed test you are going through your home network and if you are connected wirelessly to your home router and there are other wireless devices in use while running the test, this can affect the results. Spectrulink sets the speed of the customer connection so that the “up to” speed is measured at the end of the cable connecting the router to the eh CPE equipment mounted on the home. To get an accurate measure of speed, the customer should connect the device performing the test directly to this cable and run the test to several servers so that an accurate measure can be seen of how the network is performing.
Customers also need to be aware that if they are using data services like VPS or VoiP to establish a link or call that these services will occupy part of the bandwidth they see on their router and can cause other IP traffic to run slower than usual.
