Consumers have more options than ever before when it comes to home internet. And while that’s a great thing, it can be hard to know which option is best for your household. Did you know that your wireless carrier could provide your home internet via technology called fixed wireless? With fixed wireless, a home or business connects wirelessly to a nearby cell tower, providing a high-speed connection via a wireless signal, as opposed to the wired connection provided by fiber or cable.

A recent UScellular survey1 found that 75% of consumers said they would consider using their wireless provider as their home internet provider, so with that in mind, here are three reasons why you should consider your wireless provider for your home internet:

1. The technology is popular and growing quickly. Home internet using fixed wireless is easy for customers to set up on their own and can be a great value compared to cable and fiber offerings. For these reasons and others, it accounted for 90% of net broadband additions in 2022 according to Leichtman Research, making it the technology consumers chose nine out of ten times for home internet service.

2. The technology is only getting better. As providers continue to invest in wireless networks, consumers benefit from greater speed and capacity. Increasing access to the latest 5G technologies enable home internet products that deliver the speed and reliability a typical household needs.

3. You benefit from the simplicity of one bill. Customers can cut down on paperwork by subscribing to wireless and home internet service through one provider. One bill. One point of contact. One way to simplify.

UScellular’s Home Internet offering continues to grow and provide service to those who previously did not have access to reliable broadband connectivity. Learn more about our Home Internet service and where it’s offered – it just might be the perfect solution for your household.
