The company has provided these latency figures for several popular routes:

* Actual designed network ** Speed of light as the crow flies.

As a single point of comparison, Nexxcom’s Carteret/Halsey St. wireless network delivers 155 (round trip) microseconds, versus Hibernia Atlantic’s new fibre optic link, which has an SLA of 239 microseconds.

Nexxcom is focused on building turnkey networks for clients. Once a client supplies the end points, Nexxcom engineers the network, gains client approval, acquires the spectra license, negotiates roof rights and tower assets, supervises civil works, installs and aligns radios, etc.
