NetWest Wireless is West Texas' premier high speed Wireless
Internet Solutions Provider (WISP), offering cost effective,
reliable options for speedy internet connectivity. As a
market-driven Internet service provider, we are responding to
high tech demands for greater bandwidth, high speed, lower
cost, greater flexibility and wider range of services.
NetWest offers high speed wireless internet service for your

Gardendale, Pleasant Farms, Lone Star and Lonesome Dove
editions, Crane, Imperial, or Grandfalls.
Prices start at just $49.95 per month.
The NetWest wireless service is a fixed wireless
solution. This means we
will install a dish and radio combination on your rooftop or
side of your house and point the dish at our nearest receiver
tower. The dish looks
very much like a Dish Network or DirecTV dish system, but
instead of the dish being pointed up to the sky the dish is
pointed to our nearest tower.
There is a one time installation fee of $149 dollars.
The first month you will be responsible for the
installation fee plus the first months of service for a total
of $213.30 This is the
first month only and all future months will be billed at
$49.95 plus tax. With
tax the total is $49.95 per month.
There is no cap on how much internet data you transfer and
there is no long term contract.
The only thing you will sign off on is an equipment
agreement that states NetWest owns and maintains the equipment
we put at your home.
This means if the equipment breaks we will replace it at no
cost to you, or if you decide to cancel service for any reason
NetWest will retrieve the equipment from your home.
As soon as we receive your information for service and
you are entered into our system, the installation will be
scheduled within 2 – 3 business days.
WIRELESS EQUIPMENT AND INSTALLATION
Our wireless network
connects to an outdoor antenna or dish placed in a mount
typically located on the roof of your house or building.
One of our experienced technicians can ensure the antenna
installation and wiring are done in full co-operation with the
building owner and according to their specifications.
Premise Subscriber Unit
The antenna is connected
by ethernet cable to a
wireless radio or subscriber unit (SU) located in the antenna
housing. The SU requires a power outlet and is usually
connected to a network switch. The switch connects by CAT5
cabling to an ethernet jack in the customer's premise.
The SU brand and model depend on the distance your location is
from our nearest Wireless Access Point. Our SU's are chosen
for their quality construction, efficient throughput and the
security measures they take to ensure your wireless traffic is
Network Access Point (WAP)
The antenna connect the
SU's to Access Points (WAP) strategically positioned on
building roof tops and towers located throughout the Permian
SECURITY AND WEATHER
Radios are normally
located on home or building roof tops and only accessible when
accompanied by the building manager. There is a small risk
that a signal may spill over to a neighbor. We remove these
risks by programming as narrow a line-of-sight as possible and
using sophisticated features and proprietary transmission
coding between our network and customer locations.
The access point ID (or for
some models the MAC address) must be known since it is not
Similarly, the subscriber unit
ID must be known (it is not broadcast)
Smart polling of subscriber
units ensures that there is no discernible pattern
Our network management system
and the equipment are protected by a password and a
The exact RF channel assignment
must be known
All RF communications are
digital, and a potential hacker would need to know the exact
terminal equipment generating digital stream
In short, the manufacturer,
model, modulation technique, throughput, internal scrambling
code, forward error correction code are not published and
would be required for access
Our radios incorporate
safeguards to secure the wireless transmission against
Online wireless services are
engineered to avoid the influence of weather. The most
important factor is a clear line of site to our
network. We avoid rain problems by using sensitive equipment
and limiting the distance to a customer site.
Connectivity is faster than
Dial-Up, DSL or cable. The wireless equipment is
designed for easy self-installation with no need for extra
phone lines or other internet access lines. We provide
the absolute best "synchronous" connection available.
This means upload and download speeds are the same, giving you
an overall faster and more reliable connection for surfing,
gaming and multimedia. An optional firewall allows you
to place multiple computers on your own private network.
