Wireless Internet means that you receive your Internet connectivity through a wireless CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) on your roof. This CPE points to our nearest tower in order to connect to the Internet and various other services.

Instead of paying a large upfront payment for the equipment, Jenny offers affordable rental options to suit varying customer budgets. Jenny equipment rental is also subject to pre-Jenny approval protocols. If equipment replacement is required, it will be done at no extra cost to you
The equipment rental service value is calculated by subtracting labour from the total cost of the installation.
