[ WIreless Broadband ]

Wireless broadband is technology that provides high-speed wireless Internet access or computer networking access over a wide area. The major advantage of Wireless Broadband is that it does not require a Telkom phone or ADSL line. No Telkom line means no monthly line rental to Telkom. It also means that your service will continue running when the thieves steal the copper cable that we often hear / read about. The Subscriber only pays for data usage.

 

Our Wireless devision Helderconnect, is providing Wireless Broadband connectivity to Subscribers within the Helderberg basin and Stellenbosch areas.

 

Hardware

We use mostly Ubiquity CPE (Client Premises Equipment) units as they offer very good value for money. The product is also robust and we did not have any weather / water related damage yet. Wireless links of up to / over 10km are also not a problem.

Installations

Installations are not as unsightly as 10 years ago due to the improvements of modern equipment design. Below is a recent and past installation in Helderberg Village.

Reception from further away requires different equipment. We have successfully used the 400mm dish on up to 10 km links. Also when mounted close or next to your existing TV antennas etc., it causes no interference.

[ Open Source ]

Open-source software (OSS) is computer software with its source code made available and licensed with an open-source license in which the copyright holder provides the rights to study, change and distribute the software for free to anyone and for any purpose. Open-source software is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner. Open-source software is the most prominent example of open-source development and often compared to (technically defined) user-generated content or (legally defined) open-content movements.

 

A report by the Standish Group (from 2008) states that adoption of open-source software models has resulted in savings of about $60 billion per year to consumers.

 

We recommend using sites such as Sourceforge and Filehippo to obtain up to date open source software.
