Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I get EXPRESSNET high-speed Internet at my home or office?
Answer: If you have a telephone number that starts with 242, 247, 249, 263, 561, 562 you may be eligible for high-speed DSL service. If you live in or near La Grange, Weimar, Schulenburg, Fayetteville or Ellinger you may be eligible for high-speed Wireless service.
DSL has distance limitations and Wireless has geographic limitations.
Question: What are the benefits of EXPRESSNET high-speed access?
Answer: You will be able to talk on the telephone and surf the Internet simultaneously. Web pages just "pop up" because DSL or Wireless is 6 to 26 times faster than dial-up! This is an always on connection plugged into a network card inside your computer.
Question: What is the difference between EXPRESSNET DSL and Wireless high-speed service?
Answer: DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a technology for bringing high-bandwidth connectivity to homes and small businesses over existing copper telephone lines. DSL works by utilizing your existing telephone line to provide you both voice and data access on the same telphone number. Therefore, it is not necessary to have two phone lines – one for voice and one for Internet.
|Wireless high-speed Internet brings high-bandwidth connectivity through the air via a transmitter (tower).
Our technicians will install an antenna on the outside of your home or office to communicate with our tower. A network cable from that antenna is then connected into your computer's network card or a router.
High-Speed Wireless Internet Example
Our tower services an entire community
Our Wireless service is designed to provide an entire community with high-speed Internet connectivity in a point-to-multipoint structure. This differs from WiFi access, however, you can connect our equipment to your own wireless router and have wireless access throughout your home.
Question: If I have your Wireless Internet service or DSL can I also have a wireless router in my home?
Answer: Yes. You can plug the network cable from our equipment directly into a wireless router.
Question: Which is faster EXPRESSNET DSL or Wireless?
Answer: Our speed packages are the same.
Question: What type of equipment do I need for EXPRESSNET High-Speed Internet?

Question: If I sign up for EXPRESSNET High-Speed Internet will I still be billed for dial-up?
Answer: No. These are two completely different services. Dial-up Internet access is an old technology that uses a modem inside your computer to connect to the Internet through an analog (voice) telephone call over your phone line. High speed Internet access uses your computer's network card to deliver a much faster, pure digital connection.
Question: Do I need a new phone line?
Answer: Not necessarily. You can run both voice and data off of one telephone line with our DSL product offering. As with Wireless access no telephone is necessary.
