With advances to fixed wired broadband internet services over the past decade to meet the demands of consumers, rural communities have been left behind. In many urban conurbations in the western world, it's common now to have high-speed internet through fibre in the home or business.
This allows consumers to stream content, go online shopping, work seamlessly, surf the web and keep up to date with social media – all necessities in the modern world. However, approximately 9.7m people in the UK (or 17% of the population) are classed as living in rural areas according to the gov.uk website. Many of these communities struggle to have high speed fixed internet services.
The installation costs to run fibre to the home or business for many is too high or seen as commercially unviable and so there is a growing market for WiFi antennas for Rural Areas instead to fill this void. This is considered a more cost-effective, sustainable and efficient solution to meet the needs of consumers.
TALK TO AN EXPERT
Rural living can be challenging and requires adapting to overcome difficulties that come your way. In the case of broadband internet speeds, wireless is the way forward. With the cellular network, data speeds advancing with the development of 4G LTE and now 5G LTE, it’s becoming as easy and convenient to achieve high-speed internet wirelessly as through traditional fixed-line.
However, the challenge doesn’t stop there. It is vitally important the equipment is up for the task too – choosing the right WiFi antennas for Rural Areas is important and so is ensuring the installation is done correctly.
Critically important here is ensuring the antenna is pointing in the right general direction of the nearest cellular tower and making sure there is a clear line of sight between the antenna and tower. This will give you the best chances of achieving the maximum speed wireless broadband connectivity.
With any application, it’s important that the antenna is carefully considered and not an afterthought. This is equally true with WiFi Antennas for Rural Areas because what you gain from the investment from using a premium antenna you get back by optimised performance especially when in reduced coverage areas.
This is why at Panorama Antennas, we have developed a portfolio of products to suit different budgets and scenarios in what we believe are the best antennas for rural areas on the market. The lightweight, compact and portable, easy to install DMM antenna series is a 2x2 MiMo 4G/5G LTE antenna range for the cost-sensitive user.
