Residential and Business plans both require a minimum of 1 PC with an existing Ethernet network interface card (NIC) (Not provided by Creative Wireless). Existing home networks or businesses require a router (not provided) to share connection to multiple workstations.

How secure is Wireless Broadband Technology?
Wireless is as secure as the Internet itself. Because important data like credit card numbers are usually encrypted when you order something on the Internet, that same data will travel our network encrypted. And just as it is possible to view data traveling through the Internet, it is possible to view data traveling through the air over our radio links. Wireless Internet is at no greater risk of computer hacking than any other type of Internet connection.

Can weather affect the Wireless Internet signal?
The weather is not a factor in receiving our wireless signal nor does it interfere with other things such as cell phone, cable and satellite systems. However, your speed may decrease by up to 50% during torrential downpours of 6" per hour.
