Is Redbird Wireless a satellite internet service?

No. Redbird Wireless is a land-based network of towers connected wirelessly that provides fast, reliable access to the internet.

Is Redbird Wireless better than satellite?

We certainly think so, and our customers agree! Compared to satellite service we provide a reliable product that won’t cut out every time the weather isn’t perfect. Not only that, satellite signals have to travel from space in order to reach you, leading to lags that slow down your access to the internet and make activities, such as video conferencing or online gaming, very difficult to do. Our land-based network provides a faster and much more reliable service for our customers.

Do you provide a wireless router?

No, Redbird does not provide a wireless router.

Are there fees for installation?

Yes. Standard installation costs $199.

I bought a router, will you configure it for me during installation?

No. We can only be responsible for the equipment we provide as part of your service.

Is it possible to self-install the equipment?

No. A Redbird technician will take care of installation for you, ensuring your wireless service is installed and optimized for best results.
