LightWire DSL brought to you by Lighthouse.Net!
Lighthouse.Net, the largest local Internet Service Provider is leading the way again by providing High-speed DSL internet connections for homes and businesses in the UP. Lighthouse has installed new state of the art internet equipment that connects to AT&T/SBC local upgraded lines for DSL connections. These new connections are available in areas where AT&T/SBC has upgraded their lines to allow DSL connections. These connections are within approximately 18,000 feet of wiring from the local central office locations. Connection Download speeds start at 1.5Mbps and are available up to 6Mbps for true High-speed capabilities. Lighthouse Lightwire DSL Service includes a self install kit with a USB DSL modem for your computer.


This is not just the phone companies DSL! It’s better!
Lightwire DSL offers more freedom and flexibility; our subscribers enjoy faster connections and quicker ping times than Yahoo subscribers locally. You can send all the emails you want (within our AUP). Lightwire DSL has the same pricing for everyone, no “new subscriber” specials, no higher pricing for businesses. You get fair competitive pricing with the fastest service available. Most importantly you get to deal with a friendly local company who cares about you and our community. We are always here to help you.


DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a technology that allows you high-speed internet access over ordinary copper phone lines. DSL lets you use the same ordinary copper phone line for both your phone service and high-speed Internet connection. In other words, you can surf the Web and talk on the phone at the same time. This is accomplished by sending the DSL signal over the line at a higher frequency than is used by voice. The copper wires have capacity for carrying more than your phone conversations -- they are capable of handling a much greater bandwidth, or range of frequencies, than are used for voice communications. DSL utilizes this "extra capacity" to carry information on the wire without disturbing the line's ability to carry conversations.


 

How fast is a DSL connection? Downloads can be as fast as 6Mbps. Most pages will appear in a flash, and a large file that used to take minutes to download over a dial-up connection will load in seconds. Upload speed is typically 384Kbps. The exact speed depends on the wiring distance from your home to the DSL equipment in your phone company's central office; shorter distances yield a faster connection. The quality of a phone line (age, gauge, or the presence of devices that boost voice signals), and the quality of wiring in your home will also affect the speed.


How Can I Get DSL? If you live in the UP and your area has been upgraded for AT&T DSL, you can get DSL service from Lighthouse. We can check your line and tell you if you qualify. DSL Service requires that you have AT&T for your local calling service. It is simple to order and install. You need to have a properly working computer with a USB or optional Ethernet Port to connect the DSL Modem. The DSL Internet connection will use your existing phone lines, in most cases without any changes. DSL uses these lines while leaving your phone free for calling in or out so you won't have the problems of using your phone line for dialup, tying up the line so no one can call. DSL will provide you with FAST Internet so you can enjoy all the features of the World Wide Web at prices that can't be beat! You also get local service and support with Lighthouse and our award winning service. We were chosen as "Best of the Best in Chippewa County'. Signing up is easy and you can be up and running quickly with our self installation kit, provided free with your sign up. Call or visit Lighthouse.Net today to find out.
