What is Fixed Wireless Internet?
Treehouse utilizes directional antennas operating on radio frequency spectrum to provide high bandwidth, low latency internet service. With direct line of sight to our towers or repeater locations, we can service customers in the Ely Area.

Is service impacted by rain, snow, fog?
Unlike traditional satellite service, Rain, Snow, Fog, etc has no impact on the frequencies and short-range transmissions we use to deploy broadband.

Do you have data caps or throttling?
We do not have data caps and will never have data caps. We do not throttle service for excessive usage.

Is your service different or better than satellite internet?
Our service exceeds traditional satellite internet in bandwidth, latency, and reliability. We provide much higher bandwidth, with no data caps. While traditional satellite internet service latency can be 600-1000 milliseconds, causing laggy behavior, Treehouse provides latency of well under 100ms.

Do you provide speeds as advertised?
We provide approximately 20% higher speeds than advertised to account for network overhead and background data usage when testing. Speeds may be impacted by personal device capabilities, device distance from the home router, or other forms of in-home interference. If you suspect problems with your bandwidth speeds, please let us know so we can work towards quick resolution.

How does Treehouse receive upstream bandwidth?
Our upstream connection is through a regional fiber provider running over the NESC fiber network with redundant fiber connections out of Ely- one down highway 1 to Two Harbors and the other down highway 169 to Virginia.
