How Does Wireless Internet for Home Work?

Wireless internet uses the same towers as your cell phone but offers so much more — even reduced lag time.

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 with WiFi that can typically support more devices than your phone’s hotspot — without eating up your monthly mobile data.

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

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

Wireless home internet is unique because it uses the strongest signal from the cell phone towers nearby. 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.

Remember, instead of choosing your speed, you’ll choose your data plan for EarthLink Wireless Home Internet — but you’ll automatically be connected to the fastest signal around you. Getting great internet access 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 that functions very similarly to a mobile phone data plan. When you sign up for it, you choose a monthly data plan, rather than selecting a speed. It focuses on getting internet access to areas where wired fiber internet (or other high-speed internet options) just isn’t available. Let’s break it down even more:

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
Easy to self-install Includes professional installation
A variety of LTE 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.

Wireless Home Internet FAQs

You will only need one device for your home. At this time, we are only offering one device per service address.

You can connect up to 12 wireless devices to your Wireless Home Internet router — it all depends how you use it. But as more devices are added to your network, you may experience slower speeds due to use or even traffic to the cell tower. More devices also means more data, so you’ll want to keep track of your usage on the app.

There are no contracts for the Wireless Home Internet services — it’s a monthly service and you can cancel at any time without incurring any fees.

If you choose to end your service, we’ll send you instructions on how to return your router. If you don’t return the device within 31 days, there is a non-returned fee of $200 plus any applicable taxes.

Speeds will vary by person, device, and location and are based on your surrounding cell towers. Generally, you can expect download speeds between 30 Mbps and 100 Mbps and upload speeds between 4 Mbps and 15 Mbps.

When you sign up for EarthLink Wireless Home Internet, you’ll choose a data plan. Currently, we offer 25 GB, 50 GB, 75 GB, and 100 GB plans.

You can always purchase additional data or upgrade your plan. At this time, you can either purchase a one-time data addition or upgrade your plan.
