How is your Wi-Fi different?
Megabits Island Internet (Mi2), is building our own microwave radio network connected to a commercial fiber optic network on Catawba island. The microwave will send a signal to two towers on the island that will broadcast to homes, businesses and the 100’s of Hotspots across the Island. This will provide connectivity with easy Wi-Fi roaming capability for resident and visitor subscribers.

What kind of customer support will you have?
Megabits is locally owned and operated and provides full-time on-island presence to provide personal service, assure speedy installations, and technical support.
What kind of speed can you provide?
Our subscribers will be able to receive service from 25 Mbps to 100+ Mbps. The Mi2 network is engineered to support 10 Gigabits (Gbps) of traffic and has connectivity to a commercial fiber optic network providing 100 Gbps of dedicated ethernet bandwidth. The FCC has currently defined “broadband” internet as a fixed internet connection which provides speeds of 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream.
As a business owner, shouldn’t I supply free Wi-Fi for my customers?
Historically Internet and Wi-Fi service on the island has been substandard and often costly to provide. Megabits will provide affordable subscription based high speed reliable internet with our island wide Wi-Fi access points to your customers. We will install access points in your business at no cost to you. We won’t be using your connectivity, you don’t need to buy the equipment, you don’t need to maintain the equipment and you won’t need to deal with the customer support. Your customers will enjoy the convenience of high-speed connectivity, and spend more time in your business.
