High Speed Internet Progress: VABB has replaced the “back haul” antenna on our tower and the one it communicates with in Weems both of which use a much higher frequency. That has raised our Wi-Fi speeds from about 2 Mbps to over 40 Mbps download and from less than 1 Mbps to over 20 mbps upload! That is a fantastic improvement and one that was sorely needed. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL. VABB is currently searching for a 120-foot tower that will get the antenna above the trees and further increase our speeds to 100 Mbps! It will require a waiver from the county but going from 100 feet to 120 feet doesn’t seem like a big stretch. I doubt any of us could really tell and it will benefit all of our neighbors as well as our marina. Currently all dock slips are covered but the coverage in the dry storage yard is still poor due to antenna placement. That will change with the new tower. Stay tuned.
