Coverage extension (WAN)
When your house is within range of one of our towers but doesn’t have direct line of sight to it, a WAN extension is our go-to solution.
Using this solution we relay a service from a neighbouring property that can access Lightwire’s network, essentially extending our network to you via this other property.
If your neighbour is the helpful type, let’s talk about how we can team up to get you connected.
$0 install, and Lightwire’s Unlimited ($139/month) plan must be selected on a 24 month term
