Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Andrena Work?

Andrena provides high-speed Internet at a fraction of the cost. We’re able to do this because instead of relying upon telephone poles and underground cables to bring you Internet, we employ the latest wireless Internet technologies. With a fiber backbone, we deploy a series of antennas to spread Internet across a geography. Using previously deployed infrastructure or our proprietary in-home router, we then allow residential and commercial customers to tap into our network wirelessly.

What Does An Andrena Installation Entail?

If you require an in-home router, during registration you will schedule an installation time. At the designated time, a member of our installation team will arrive with our proprietary Andrena router that will sit in a window or near an exterior wall and only requires power. The setup of our router takes approximately 30 minutes. If you have any specific questions regarding the installation, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team through our support phone number or email.

What is the range of wireless coverage?

Within your building, Andrena wireless access points can be set up on every floor, or within range of subscribers for the best coverage.  As the property owner, you have the ability to determine the locations of these access points.  
Outside of your building, subscribers in nearby households (not on your property) receive coverage from smallcell radios that may cover up to a half mile, depending on obstacles such as tall buildings that may interfere with radio signals.

What are the equipment items?

Network Core is the foundation of the network that is required for every installation. It provides the connectivity and services to access the Internet.
Rooftop Mount is the hardware that is typically placed on a roof that contains antennas (radios) and other equipment.
Backhaul Radios provide high-speed connectivity to the Internet backbone from your building.
Smallcell Radios are the access points for wireless coverage for subscribers in the surrounding area.

What About Security?

Andrena takes security and the protection of your personal information very seriously. To that end, we have designed our hardware, software, and network infrastructure from the ground up, using the latest innovations in network security. Whether you have our in-home router or not, once you create a personal network during sign up or through your dashboard, our firewall works with it behind the scenes so that no one else has access to it, isolating your data from everyone else’s.

How Does It Compare With A Personalized WiFi Network?

When you create an Andrena account you create a personalized WiFi network with the network name and password of your choosing. Depending on where you are located, however, AndrenaWiFi may still appear as an available network and you can use either AndrenaWiFi or your personalized network for Internet. As an Andrena subscriber, you have access to Andrena Internet wherever it is available by simply selecting the AndrenaWiFi network when it appears (if you don’t already connect automatically). In your home, we recommend using your personalized WiFi network across all of your devices.
