Speed tests can be ran multiple ways but the easiest, and normally the most accurate, is to visit upon visiting, the speed test will automatically begin and once completed will display your download speed in bold text.

In order to benefit the most from your internet service, a router is recommended. Beyond Media will provide the initial router at the time of installation. A customer’s router can be used but is not recommended for management purposes. Router replacements may cost depending on your package.

If you are moving to a new home location, the first step is to call our office and see if your new address is serviceable. If so, your equipment can be moved seamlessly. If not, we will remove your equipment from your home and disconnect your internet services on your scheduled moving date. (installation fee at new home will apply)

Serviceability can be verified either by calling our office, emailing, or visiting our website home page and inserting your home address into our ‘Are You Serviceable’ section.

Rebooting your radio’s power supply (poe), may need to be done when your internet service is not working properly or after a storm. In order to do this, locate your poe (a small black rectangle approximately 1 inch wide by 3 inches long with a Beyond Media sticker located on top), find the ‘To Radio’ arrow and unplug the Ethernet cable from the port. After 10 seconds, plug the same cable back into the port until an audible click isheard.

Your internet service should return to normal after 2 minutes. If not, visit ourtroubleshooting section below or call our office.

Each internet service installation requires a small dish or radio located on the outside of your home or somewhere on your property pointed to a ground tower located nearest to you. This radio will have a cable running to wherever you wish the internet service on the inside of your building to be installed (cable length not to exceed 380 feet). Two grounded outlets will be required for the radio power supply (poe) and your internet router (provided by Beyond Media).

The dish is not required to be installed on your home, but we will request to install your dish at whatever location on your property may receive the best signal level, is the least invasive, and provides the easiest avenue for installation. The dish can be mounted on a post located somewhere on your property with a cable being buried to the post location.

If your installation requires a cable run to be buried, the installation technicians will not bury your cable at the time of the install. This is done to verify your internet service is working properly before burial of the cable takes place. A cable burial ticket will be scheduled approximately 1-2 weeks after installation. No extra charge will apply.

There are 2 options to getting a secondary internet service connection in a shop, garage, or other outbuilding. If the distance between your house and shop/garage is only separated by grass and a cable can be buried in the ground, we can run a cable to connect the services and install a new router in the additional building. This would cost $50 for the cable run and $45 for the additional router. The second option is installing a point-to-point and used when gravel or concrete driveways are in the way. This option costs $199 and once the equipment is installed and working properly, it is then the property of the customer and their responsibility.

Localline2 charged 30 dollars for home service fees, 50 dollars for cable replacements, and 60 dollars for router replacements. Beyond Media offers different benefits for each package in terms of router replacements and network management fees (see package listing), but instead of charging for those services, Beyond Media charges $2.50 per month (30 dollars a year) for an unlimited number of home service calls.
