Frequently Asked Questions
So, what exactly is MB Link? MB Link is a full fiber-optic broadband network; from data centers to your home. So, you won’t have your speed impacted by old copper wire technology. Everything on the network moves at the literal speed of light.
Will MB Link be more reliable than my current service? The MB Link network has been engineered to be one of the most reliable in the area. With our fiber backbone ring design and redundant connections to the internet, most potential issues are avoided; your data is just routed the other way. With this system, you’ll have reliability that far surpasses other local providers.
Do I get my own Gig? No. However, the speed with which MB Link operates gives you the highest speed possible at the time access to the network is requested. That is literally milliseconds. The network is constantly evaluating and prioritizing access request to be sure it’s optimizing speeds. It would take a HUGE event with everyone on your network segment (a 32 customer bundle called a “PON”) requesting a lot of bandwidth all at once to even notice a reduction in service speed.
What happens after I sign up? After signing up and paying your $75 deposit and $75 installation fee (installation fee is waived during our pre-sale event!), a pre-installation site survey – covering both the exterior and interior of the home - will be done. Then, your exterior install will be done; you don’t have to be home for this, just make sure the technician can access the necessary areas. Finally, we will schedule your interior installation – you do have to be present for this part – so you can get set up and have internet at the speed of life!
Are there data caps and network throttling like with other services? With MB Link, there are no data caps and no throttling. That means you won’t get charged more if you use more. And, when demand is high, we don’t slow the network down… we know MB Link can handle it.
What do I get for $75/mo.?  Up to 1 Gbps down/up internet service and a digital gateway with carrier-grade Wi-Fi, and a UPS battery backup for the system – when the power goes down, you’ll still have service.
Can I save some money and buy my own equipment? No. To ensure network speeds and keep customer service high, we are not allowing anything other than the MB Link issued gateway to be used in conjunction with the service. But, the good news is, it’s already included in your monthly bill, so there are no additional rental fees for equipment.
