Fixed Wireless Access
(FWA), which can support 5G technology, is the next generation of wireless broadband connectivity, offering the potential for ultra-high speeds, low latency and massive capacity.
In theory, this could allow users to enjoy speeds comparable to a wired broadband connection. It is often used to provide Internet access to homes, businesses and other locations where wired infrastructure is not available.
Rural areas: FWA can be used to provide Internet access to homes and businesses in remote rural areas where installing wired infrastructure is impractical or too expensive.
Urban areas: FWA can also be used in urban areas where fixed internet is not available or where laying new cables is too expensive.
Temporary Locations: FWA can be used to provide internet access at temporary locations such as construction sites, festivals and events.
Businesses: FWA can be used to provide businesses with a backup internet connection or as a primary connection when wired connections are not available.
Educational Institutions: FWA can be used to provide Internet access to schools and universities in remote areas where wired connections are not available, or as a backup for wired connections.
