How does liNKCity internet compare to other providers?
Fiber optics offers many advantages over traditional copper cable lines. Fiber is able to transfer data much faster and at greater distances due to the fact data is now able to travel at the speed of light. The conductor is glass and cannot generate electricity so it is immune to all sorts of interference. This allows the fiber to come in contact with all sorts of high voltage electrical equipment without hampering the superior performance. An underground fiber network is the most reliable, protecting customers from outages that may be created by the weather and other outside forces. Fiber is one of the most affordable carriers of data which allows liNKCity the ability to bring new technology to businesses and residences for half the cost of traditional providers.

How do I decide which business package is best for my business?
There are a variety of factors that determine the best package available for your business. Factors such as web hosting, remote access, file transfer, and VOIP service will play an important role in your decision. The one thing to remember is with VOIP services your data connection is feeding both your phone line and your internet connection. The VOIP connection is always on and requires a certain amount of the data line to meet its needs. When considering a business package it is important to take a look at what your business does, and if you will be using traditional analog lines, or a VOIP system. If you have questions please contact the sales department of liNKCity at 816-412-7990, or by filling out the contact form on the forms page and we will be happy to address any of your concerns regarding you decision on what package is best for your organization.

How long does it take to install liNKCity internet services?

It all depends on how much work needs to be done to establish your connection. If the business or residence has previously had liNKCity service the connection can be up and running a day after you sign up for service. If you are not comfortable where the liNKCity connection is coming in, and request the jack be moved to a different location you are then looking at a four hour time frame.

If the building or residence has not had liNKCity service before, but it is determined that conduit is already placed in the ground up to the building then the installation time would be a full day. Installations are scheduled from 9am to 5pm on the given day agreed upon by the customer and the sales team. Someone must be on location on the day of installation to allow access into the residence or building.

If the business or residence has not had liNKCity service and it has been determined that conduit is not in the ground leading up to the building a site survey must be completed by the installation technician to note where the conduit needs to be placed and where the service is to come into the building or residence. After that the sales team will contact the customer to determine an installation date. It is important to note this time frame usually takes up to 8 business days from the time of sign up. liNKCity is required by law to notify Missouri Dig Right for locates. Locates can take up to three days. Once locates are complete the liNKCity crew is usually able to complete the full day install in the next day or two. For questions about this process please feel free to contact the sales staff at 816-412-7990.
