About NCATS Broadband:

NCATS is pleased to offer the first local high-speed wireless Internet access for Newaygo County.

Wireless Internet uses high frequency radio waves to communcate Internet data between radio devices. subscribers require a small Internet radio and antenna installed at their home, which in turn connects to their computer offering always-on, high-speed Internet access.

NCATS Wireless Broadband was implemented due to a growing demand for broadband service in Newaygo County. Due to the existing limitations of standard technologies such as DSL or Cable, Wireless Internet has become a community project to offer low latency, high throughput resources to those homes and businesses outside the reach of traditional services.
