Wired Extreme - 10 Gig Fiber Optic Connectivity
Update May 5, 2017: the first test results at one of the many upcoming 10-Gigabit hubs are in. Click here for the pics.
AWL = Angie Wireless Extreme
AWE = Angie Wired Extreme
With Angie you have two options for business connectivity:
- Wireless Extreme – Home Office
- Wired Extreme – Business
Difference between AWL Residential and AWL Home Office
You can use AWL Home Office for your commercial means, while AWL Residential is primarily meant for household access. Your AWL Home or AWL Home Office subscription cannot be shared with 3rd parties (e.g. colleagues at work, customers etc.).
Difference between AWL Home Office and AWE
A shopkeeper (clothing store, dry cleaner, bakery etc.) can subscribe to AWL Home Office too, but for establishments where people can sit or work, a Wired Extreme subscription is necessary.
The difference between AWL Home Office and AWE lays in a) the location, b) your company purpose, and c) the connectivity and access method.
What is Angie Wired Extreme?
- You will get a Gigabit connection for a guaranteed low price for 24 or 36 months.
- As a Wired Extreme subscriber, you will get the premium service. You can promote this by way of a Wired Extreme symbol sticker on your door or window. Your customers will soon become familiar with the Wired Extreme symbol through advertising and promotions.
- As soon as your customers see the Wired Extreme symbol, they will know that you are offering them the premium Wired Extreme Gigabit service, free of charge. This symbol will increase the attractiveness of your business.
- We will take care of the investment for your business. All you have to pay is the low monthly fee.
With Wi-Fi via Wired Extreme you will get ultra-high-speed internet access of up to 1 Gigabit per second, made possible by the most advanced, next generation, Wi-Fi technologies that are connected to Angie’s fiber optic network. You, your customers and visitors can use Wired Extreme on existing devices. There is no need to invest in expensive new devices.
Let Angie connect your building with 10 Gigabit Fiber Optic service!
We also have another valuable proposition if you live or work in one of our 10,000 pre-approved buildings or in the same zip code. Angie can, in mutual agreement with you and/or your landlord/building manager, realise a 10 Gigabit fiber optic connection (3 – 4 months lead time) to your building.
Angie has a unique proposition for building owners: 10 Gigabit Fiber Optic Wired Extreme
There are major benefits with Wired Extreme for you and your building:
- Angie is responsible for the whole process and the financing of it: the fiber optic connection to and in your building, activation, transport and IP-transit.
- Angie will place an Access Point or Extremer (micro access point) inside or close to your unit (inside the building), that is directly connected to the 10 Gigabit fiber connection in your building.
- Angie realises and finances the in-building part too (materials, devices, access points, etc.).
- Angie can also connect your own company network (wiring) and devices to Angie’s equipment. This is highly recommended for business users.
- Angie’s 10 Gigabit connection in your building is futureproof. When you’re ready in the future for a physical fiber optic connection to your unit, you can easily be upgraded to Angie’s Fiber to the Office service.
- Your tenants/customers/colleagues/employees will realise and appreciate that you are dedicated to increase productivity and efficiency by subscribing to the most advanced Internet service available in the market.
- With a Wired Extreme network in your building, your direct environment instantly becomes more attractive for third parties: tenants, suppliers, partners.
- You’ll get a special router that picks up the wireless signal from the nearest (in-door) Access Point or Extremer. Through this router you’ll be able to connect and work as you are used to – or you connect your company’s own network cabling to Angie’s network equipment.
You can view the map below or on this link with a preliminary overview of pre-approved buildings. This list is growing every day.
How does it work?
- These 10,000 buildings and most surrounding buildings (in the same zip code or radius of 50-150 meters) are pre-approved by Angie. This means that these buildings can be connected with a 10 Gigabit fibre optic connection as soon as the building owner or manager gives their explicit permission (we call that Right of Entry). If you’re working in one of those (surrounding) buildings, you should really get your landlord or manager moving. We only accept to connect buildings that make life easier for Angie, and we do not engage in acquiring building entry rights. We have to be approached by a tenant or the building owner/manager.
- The Right of Entry is required for the fiber connection (drop/lateral) to and inside your building. Angie is solely responsible for the financing and other liabilities related to the system/network and fiber connectivity in your building. The building owner will never be liable for costs of connection, construction or any other operational liabilities. The Right of Entry agreement is a short, comprehensive document of just two pages, and it makes clear what the expectations are between Angie and the building owner/manager. You can download the word version here.
- As soon as the Right of Entry is agreed upon by both parties (building owner and Angie), Angie will confirm and order the fiber optic connectivity. There are no further conditions or reservations other than that listed in the 2-pager. Realisation/delivery of the 10 Gig connection to your building may take anywhere between 8 to 16 weeks after the agreement. A delivery timeline can be found on page 2 of the Right of Entry agreement.
- Together with you (or the building owner/manager) Angie will plan and arrange a site survey and other important aspects. We request this online form to be completed by you. If you don’t hear from us in 48 hours, make sure to email us at email@example.com.
Search for your post code (e.g. 90210 for Beverly Hills) and then zoom in to see whether your building or neighbourhood is a pre-approved fibre zone.
