Frequently Asked Questions
Andrena provides high-speed Internet at a fraction of the cost. We’re able to do this by cutting out the middlemen and working directly with Tier 2 Internet providers, the same companies who provide Internet for universities, hospitals, financial services, and other users with heavy data needs. Leveraging their existing fiber networks, we deploy a series of antennas to blanket a geography with Internet access. Using previously deployed infrastructure or our proprietary in-home router, we allow consumers and businesses to tap into our network, bringing Internet to our customers wirelessly.
Guess again. Because of our unique technology, we are able to bring Internet to your home or business more efficiently than your existing Internet provider, which means that we can share the savings with you. Our service is $25 per month with no hidden fees, no equipment rentals, the first month of Andrena Internet is free, and service is on a month-to-month basis so you can cancel whenever (though we hope you'll stick around!).
Andrena wants to empower our customers to own the last mile of the Internet. What this means is that each additional customer that joins the network strengthens the network, not only by expanding the reach of the network, but also by providing further redundancy and load balancing for users across the network. By becoming an Andrena customer, you not only gain high-speed Internet at a fraction of the cost, you potentially expand the reach of our network to your neighbors, at no degradation to your service.
For a reference, Netflix recommends a 3 mbps connection for one standard-quality stream and 5 mbps for a high-definition stream. An Andrena connection of up to 50 mbps means that you could have up to 10 concurrent high-definition streams on the one connection. Note, however, that at times your Internet speeds will be above or below 50 mbps based on normal fluctuations in the network.
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 an Andrena router that will sit in a window and receives a wireless signal from an Andrena antenna in the vicinity. Pleasae note that the Andrena router does require an outlet, but the installation specialist will come prepared with power cables of varying lengths. 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.
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.
You've come to the right place. Chord-cutting starts with an amazing Internet experience and at Andrena, we focus on doing just that. While you may already subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, HBO, or any of the other streaming services, for many of our customers, TV and phone services are still important. But never fear, you're still in luck. With services like fuboTV, Sling TV, Pluto TV, Rabbit TV, and Vonage, you can have your chord-cutting cake and eat it too, with streaming and voice over IP (VOIP) services that take the place of your existing provider's triple play package. If you're curious in learning more about the chord-cutting options that will still save you money on a monthly basis, feel free to contact our support team by phone, text, or email at (256) 907-8690 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
