NEW! Wido-Sat Xtreme
Wido-Sat Xtreme offers high speed internet satellite technology to download data at broadband speed to all contiguous 48 states. Wido-Sat Xtreme systems can be installed in a matter of hours.
We believe our hybrid technology provides a better experience to internet users because of the simplicity of our system. Whereas others in the satellite business rely on complex and expensive two-way transmission equipment, we believe that utilizing your telephone line as a request path to the internet affords us these advantages:
Our exclusive modem/router combo utilizes the 2nd generation DVB-S2 satellite modulation standard, providing 30% more efficiency than earlier modems or quirky PCI cards. Click here for more information.
Cutting the cord
Standalone Broadband is now available. With eighteen percent of homes with no landlines, and another thirteen percent of them have landlines but don’t use them. This means that a total of 30% of home customers don’t have or don’t want an old fashioned POTs (plain old telephone service) line.
Widomaker now offers Standalone Broadband. What this means is that you do not have to have Phone service or Cable service to get Broadband from us. We install the Highspeed line on what we call a dry-loop circuit.
This new dedicated line is a DATA only line. This allows customers to use alternative Phone service such as VoIP or no voice service at all!
The nice thing about Standalone Broadband, is that there are no extra monthly costs! Most of our Highspeed Broadband plans support this new Standalone option. Feel free to contact a sales member for more information.
