Wireless Internet Pricing
service is available for both stand-alone PCs, and for network
KansasNet requires a 1-year commitment from Wireless subscribers. Failure
to complete the one-year commitment will result in a penalty fine
equal to the number of months remaining in the commitment, multiplied
by the monthly rate (shorter terms are available, call for pricing on
such custom scenarios). Service fees will be
automatically debited from a credit/debit card or banking account unless
otherwise agreed upon within the order form. This service is prorated
only in the first month, and charges begin the day after installation.
A subscriber who's installation is
terminated, or must be removed due to customer noncompliance with
their landlord or housing association will still be liable for the
full installation fee. In
other words, CHECK WITH YOUR HOUSING ASSOCIATION OR LANDLORD BEFORE
MAKING YOUR INSTALLATION PAYMENT, OR IT COULD BE RETAINED FOR SERVICES
RENDERED (Note: we will refund installation fees if we are not able to
provide you with the service). A
written letter from Property Owner, Manager (or housing association)
will insure that this doesn’t happen to you.
Note: For determinations of
availability, please submit the Online
Wireless Qualification Form.
The pricing in this document refers to “standard installation." In terms of equipment, the standard installation includes a DSS-type mount, a cable up to 100ft (cable is $.75/ft over 100ft), the wireless client unit and antenna, and necessary cable(s). In terms of labor (in the case of a single PC connection), we will provide installation of the connection to a PC, up to and including the network interface card, and perform simple software configuration of the subscriber's PC.
are cases when installation may go beyond “standard.”
These include cost of additional cable, additional mast height,
or labor beyond standard installation.
Additional labor could include (but is not limited to): work on
your PC or network, installation of antenna on a steep roof or
otherwise unsafe area, & running cable through difficult areas or
structures (including brick walls). Feel free to consult the
installation tech, prior to the install, about any additional labor
that may apply.
Standard self-installation of a connection to a single PC is $99 (not available in all areas).
This amount is
due prior to installation (making this payment begins the process of
preparing your self-installation kit). For
this fee, we will provide usage of the wireless equipment and basic,
telephone-based technical support during the installation. NOTE:
Due to the potential distance and other factors, the self-installation
option is not available in all locations, talk to our sales staff for
self-install availability. See below for monthly service
Standard professional installation of a connection to a single PC is $198.
This amount is
due prior to installation (making this payment reserves
your installation date). For
this fee, we will provide installation and all the necessary hardware
for the connection to a PC, up to, and including the NIC, and perform
simple software configuration of the subscriber's PC. If there are
problems with the PC beyond the scope of the connection (i.e. OS,
other software, or hardware), the tech will notify the subscriber that
there is a problem, and will not perform the installation. In this
case, the subscriber must get their PC repaired and reschedule their
installation. You may only reschedule once, and then additional
installation charges will apply. See below for monthly service
services beyond standard installation:

Asked Questions (FAQ):
Is there a subscriber self-install package?
A: Yes, please see more
information regarding the wireless self-installation kit and pricing
in the appropriate section above.
How long does it take to get service installed (from point of order to
point of install)?
generally try to keep several self-install kits on hand and
ready-to-go for subscribers who choose the self-installation
option. However, configuration of the wireless client unit is
customer specific so please allow up to 1 business day for
provisioning of the wireless self-installation kit. The
professional installation process generally takes 2-3 business days, but, depending on the
complexity of your install (i.e. do we have to build & configure a
router, etc.), your install could take longer.
Or, depending on our work load, we may be able to get to it
more quickly. At the point
you make your down payment, an install date will be assigned.
We will work closely with you, and do our best to meet this
date, but again, it is relative to the complexity, and our current
What performance can I expect from this connection rate?
A: We will guarantee a
minimum connection rate of 128Kbps (Kilobits per second) in both
directions. You will rarely see a connection rate this slow (128Kbps).

connection should always lie in this range.

provide devices which interface with your MacIntosh's existing network
Can I run an Web, FTP, gaming, or other inbound posted server on this
A: No, plain & simple.
This service is intended to be an outbound connection.
By having people access your location (inbound traffic), you
could potentially cause large amounts of traffic on the network, and
could become vulnerable to the outside world (i.e. hackers). Our
administration department has the ability to monitor connections &
determine traffic patterns. The
first violation will probably only be a notice that your connection is
not intended for this use. Your
second will be loss of connection with the resulting fine being your
monthly fee multiplied by the number of months remaining in your
