High Speed Wireless Internet
In 2003, J&R Electronics started laying the ground work to provide rural areas with high speed microwave Internet. We set up our first customer in 2004 and have grown our customer base to over 300 small business and residential customers as well as providing service to four school districts in the area.
We use genuine Motorola Canopy gear for our Internet, which gives our customers the highest reliability available. Microwave Internet uses equipment simular in size and shape to a satellite dish but because microwaves work up to 16 miles away from the access point, versus the 23,000 miles a satellite travels, the speeds are faster and more stable.
J&R Electronics currently provides service in Coeur d' Alene, Post Falls, Hayden, Rathdrum, Spirit Lake, Athol, Harrison, Lewiston, Tammany, Clarkston, Rockford, and Liberty Lake. However, customers must have a clear line of site (no trees blocking the view) to one of our moutain sites: Rathdrum Mountain, Mica Peek, Lewiston Hill, or Tammany Hill.
Below is a list of the Internet services we offer. Upon signup, the installation fee and first month's service is due. Additional fees may be added based upon installation needs, i.e. extra cabling, router, non-standard mounting bracket, etc.
