If you have placed an order with your ISP and have not yet received any follow-up emails from Mitsol, please let us know.
With the second wave of COVID-19 upon us, Mitsol, an essential service provider, will continue to do home installations. We’d like to assure all our customers that our contractors and home installations teams will, at all times, adhere to the precautionary measures outlined by our Government.
Comparing Apples with Apples
As you are aware, you have a choice of two FNO’s (Fibre Network Operators), Mitsol and Frogfoot. We thought we would assist you with a quick price comparison of the packages for ISPs that offer services over both Mitsol and Frogfoot’s Fibre Network. We were pleased to find that pricing over the Mitsol network has remained super competitive. This strengthens our pledge to customers to ALWAYS! offer Fast Fibre at Fantastic Prices!
What Is The Difference Between WiFi And Internet?
Internet is a service provided to you by your Internet service provider (ISP), which is delivered to your property via a fixed-line fibre connection, and this is connected into an ISP supplied router installed in your home. This router may be Wi-Fi enabled which will allow any internal Wi-Fi enabled device to access the internet.
Wi-Fi enables you to connect one device to another, wirelessly (without cables). The Wi-Fi signal in your home is distributed to your devices via a router, which enables your devices to connect to the internet via your internal Wi-Fi network, however, this signal does not necessarily extend throughout your property. A technical expert from your ISP can suggest solutions to ensure that your Wi-Fi signal covers maximum area within your property, but this may require additional Wi-Fi range extenders.
For more reliable connections such as TVs, Desktops servers etc. we suggest cabling these devices using a LAN cable into the same router.
