How It Works
Here are the steps to getting connected with Spry Wireless internet:
What Is SpryNext?
We get this question a lot. To understand what SpryNext is, you first have to understand where it came from. Spry Wireless started providing fixed wireless internet to customers more than 12 years ago. We were able to deliver speeds up to 10 Mbps in some places, but with that technology, we were capped out there. Well, it’s 2022, and as you can imagine, technology has come a long way.
SpryNext is simply the next generation of Spry Wireless internet services. We sometimes refer to this next-generation service as Spry UltraNet or Spry Air Fiber. This is simply what we have come to call the new network we have built, which is capable of delivering very high speeds to your home or office.
Our UltraNet is built to support current gaming, streaming, and media consumption needs without the delay of buffering.

What Is A Wireless Internet Service Provider?
A wireless internet service provider (WISP) is a company that provides internet to your home or business via a ground base radio connection (not to a satellite in space). It doesn’t require you to have a wire to your house from an outside source like DSL or dial-up does. Additionally, we can often reach remote areas with our line-of-sight radios and near line-of-sight equipment. And unlike satellite internet and DSL, our speeds rival those of cable!
Do I Have to Sign a Contract?
Not at all! Spry does not believe in locking a customer into a commitment or penalizing you if you need or want to change services. We see very few clients leave our service due to speeds or quality issues, and this is why we don’t have to lock you into what may or may not be a quality internet experience.
Is Your Service Like Satellite Internet?
It’s much different. We are NOT satellite.
Let’s compare fixed wireless (what we are) vs. satellite.
First, fixed wireless is not the same thing as a satellite internet service. Both satellite and fixed wireless require a dish or antenna, and both provide a high-speed internet connection without using phone or cable lines. However, there are some important differences that make fixed wireless the more attractive option.
The biggest difference is that fixed wireless is not affected by weather, unlike satellite. A satellite connection can be interrupted by weather conditions in your area, at the central server location, or in the general atmosphere.
Fixed wireless, however, is usually no higher than 500 feet, and the signal never travels up through the atmosphere, so storms and other weather conditions won’t interfere with the signal traveling to your location.
Another important difference is latency (lag time). With satellites, each bit of data has to travel from earth to a satellite 22,500 miles above the equator and then back to earth. This is a total of 45,000 miles, which causes a noticeable delay.
Because the signal has a shorter distance to travel, latency is significantly less when using fixed terrestrial wireless than with satellite internet. This means that all of your streaming and real-time applications will function at maximum efficiency.
