Flexible, reliable internet how it was meant to be.

EarthLink Wireless Home Internet, the latest in home wireless internet technology, brings the right connection to areas with limited options – without having to pay for expensive satellite equipment or worrying about the weather blowing away your connection. And it’s local, not orbiting the Earth.

Unlimited possibilities and places.

If you’re in an area with limited internet accessibility or providers, wireless home internet can keep you connected. It’s a home WiFi option that’s more reliable than satellite and faster than DSL — or your cell phone’s hotspot.

How Does Wireless Internet for Home Work?

Once you bring the device home, it functions just like a typical router, but with even easier set-up. Just plug it in and activate your service, and, in minutes, you’ll have a secure, private internet connection for your home that can support multiple devices.

And your device will be in your hands within just a few days of calling EarthLink.

A mobile hotspot can only handle 10 connected devices at best, but the typical American household has 11.

Wireless internet uses the same towers as your cell phone but offers so much more. It even reduces lag time and can support more devices than your phone — all without burning through your mobile data.

Does Wireless Internet Use 5G or 4G LTE for Home Internet?

Wireless home internet is unique because it uses the strongest signal from nearby cell phone towers. If you live in a more rural area where 4G LTE is a widely available, you’ll be covered with a high-speed 4G home internet connection. 4G LTE is great for rural areas because cell towers are often available where a wired connection (like fiber internet) is not. And it’s faster than DSL internet, too.

For now, 5G home internet isn’t available in many places. But as it expands, you’ll be the first to know when you can use 5G internet service.

Getting the fastest internet speed has never been so easy.

Why Wireless Home Internet from EarthLink?

Are you:

  • Living in an area with limited internet service like satellite or DSL internet, but no fiber internet or cable?
  • Planning to move to a new town?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, wireless internet is exactly what you’re looking for.

What’s the Difference Between Wireless Internet and Fiber Internet?

Both types of high-speed internet will get you online, but they serve different purposes. Wireless home internet is a new type of internet connection, with a focus on getting reliable high-speed internet to areas where wired fiber internet (or other high-speed internet options) isn’t available.

Wireless Home Internet Fiber Internet
Great for areas that rely on DSL or satellite internet Great for areas with fiber internet access
Wireless connection Wired connection
Speeds up to 100 Mbps Speeds up to 1 Gbps
Easy to self-install Includes professional installation
A variety of data plans No data caps

If you’re in an area where fiber internet is available, that will always be the best option. But if you’re currently stuck with spotty cable, DSL, or satellite internet, wireless internet is likely a much better choice. It’s more affordable and more reliable than satellite and faster than both satellite and DSL.
