The Leaders of Broadband

Urbancom.net has been a leading provider of business broadband services in the Chicago Metro area since 1997. Our network of fixed wireless microwave towers and fiber optic network allows us to deliver a secure and ultra-fast network to our business customers. Unlike all the other phone or Internet carriers who rely on the phone company wires and cable to provide last minute service to customer locations, our connection of fixed wireless microwave or dedicated fiber optic connection creates an alternative means of access to your facility. We provide a level of steadfast service that is not available through a traditional wire line or cable carriers who have a single point of failure on the local exchange network or in the underground facilities that enter your building.

5G WiMax Fixed Wireless Microwave

Our last mile multi-point solution is deployed with our fifth generation of technology. Our 5G WiMAX radios use spectrum licensed by the FCC to reduce interference and provide our customers a Quality of Service (QOS) to deliver prioritization to voice traffic to optimize the delivery of traffic to the customer and provide our customers with service level agreements unmatched by others.

Urbancom.net offers several speed levels of 5G WiMax Fixed Wireless Microwave. All our speeds, which are equal offerings, are guaranteed speeds, unlike other deceptive speeds like other carriers offer.

Dedicated Fixed Microwave

Urbancom.net has been the industry leader in providing high speed broadband via dedicated fixed microwave. We’ve built an large self-healing network comprised of FCC licensed Dragonwave high speed microwave links and Cisco gigabit switch technology to create the most strong network of its kind in the Chicago Metro area. Connected with a dark fiber backbone linking its redundant NOC’s, we can provide up to a gigabit access to high demand customers.  This high speed backbone has the capability for us to provide dedicated point to point connections to business and enterprise customers.

With equipment currently installed on over two dozen tower locations throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and northern Illinois, Urbancom.net is positioned to provide customers with high-speed dedicated point-to-point microwave links. These links can provide an emergency backup to wired facilities during an unexpected outage, providing a failover for traditional wired connections. Because we rely heavily on our own links throughout our network, we provide businesses and governmental agencies with redundancy to their primary wired networks in times of a disaster or emergency. These links can be used to carry data as well as voice with VoIP technology.  At Urbancom.net, we can design and implement a network that is truly redundant and creates a fail-safe network for your business.

Available Speeds

  • 10 Mbps / 10 Mbps
  • 20 Mbps / 20 Mbps
  • 50 Mbps / 50 Mbps
  • 100 Mbps / 100 Mbps
  • 200 Mbps / 200 Mbps
  • 400 Mbps / 400 Mbps
  • 800 Mbps / 800 Mbps
  • 1.0 Gbps / 1.0 Gbps – 4.0 Gbps

The point-to-point links can also be used by businesses to deploy their own managed private network as well as to provide Internet access with speeds which surpass a DS3 at a fraction of the monthly reoccurring cost. This solution provides a short ROI.

With contracts for tower access and access to over 150 roof tops in the Chicago area, we have the facilities to deploy a custom network for almost any application.

Custom links can be designed in various frequency ranges including both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
