Relay Host Package:

Linksys WRT32x AC3200 Dual-band WiFi Gaming Router
Relay Revenue:
Package Overview: As relays serve the essential core function of growing our network in size and speed by providing bandwidth to customers around them the minimum router required is our Linksys WRT32X router capable of handling a faster connection speed than our entry level router, though other router options are also available. This also means that, by necessity, we work to deliver the fastest connection possible to our relay hosts.

Each relay is designed and built on a case-by-base basis to both maximize it’s benefit to the network as well as the revenue it earns for the owner. The price listed here is the entry level price for a basic relay, but depending on the location and the amount the customer is willing to invest in their relay can be built with higher performance equipment and multiple receiving and transmitting antennas.

Relay Hosting Disclaimers:

While relays do provide the owner a certain revenue, purchasing a relay should not be considered a profit-making investment. Relay earnings fluctuate over time depending on the number of customers around you, as well as their overall bandwidth usage. While there are certain circumstances in which a relay might earn a profit, most relays earn enough to significantly and sometimes entirely subsidize a customers service cost.

Anyone has the option (and is encouraged) to host a relay, not all locations are well suited for a relay at the time of their initial customer installation. If this is the case and you wish to host a relay we will keep you on a wait list and notify you at such time when hosting a relay would be practical.

Disclaimers and Notes Concerning Equipment and Installation Costs:

As we sell all equipment at cost we cannot currently provide any lower prices. While we offer a quality of service that provides faster speeds and lower costs than other internet providers, we do understand that the upfront cost can be a barrier for entry in some cases. Because of this we offer to work with every customer on a per-case basis to establish an initial payment plan that best works for them.

We are continually working on ways we can provide equipment, installations, and the cost of our service itself at an ever lower cost to our customers. Along these lines we are also working on plans to be able to provide subsidized equipment, installation, and service fees for low-income families and other demographics in need.

Lastly, due to the continually and quickly changing landscape of supply chains for electronics, and other supplies related to our installations, these prices are subject to possible change. However any change in cost will promptly communicated to all present and future customers on our website and other forms of direct communications.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. We look forward to continuing to grow our network and providing best-in-class services to residents of the Missoula and Bitterroot valley’s for many years to come.
