Products & Services:
Air Advantage™ is a wireless Internet service provider (WISP) who began providing broadband wireless service in 2002. Our network began with 5 tower antennas serving a potential market of about 2,000 people. During its initial stages of growth, Air Advantage™ received two grants from the USDA’s Rural Utility Service (RUS) to provide Internet service in two small un-served markets. A relationship was built with the USDA and Air Advantage™ secured a loan through the USDA’s low-interest Broadband Loan program to provide broadband service to parts of rural Michigan. These grants and loans have helped Air Advantage™ grow into one of the Nation’s leading license-free wireless broadband providers.
Air Advantage™ is making their system of broadband delivery available to like minded investors and entrepreneurs for the purpose of bridging the digital divide that exists in rural America. Our system makes it simple and affordable to deliver broadband to un-served and underserved rural and small urban markets. Our vast experience in providing this service to rural communities can help you bring this necessary service to your community.
Air Advantage™ provides strong back office support services to allow the franchisee business owner to focus on business growth, customer attention and a local community presence. We feel very strongly that an active local community presence will help make this business a success. As the franchisor, we will provide you with billing, scheduling, and customer technical support services. We will also assist you with system technical support, tower selection services, RF propagation analysis, network design, installation, monitoring and maintenance. We have developed a customer installation process that can save you substantial labor costs by using our system.
Training & Support:
Training is provided at our corporate location to give you a good feel for how our system works and the issues you might encounter “on the job”. You will learn about the history of Air Advantage, our philosophy, best practices and get hands on experience in our existing location. You will also visit existing tower locations to become familiarized with the types of equipment you will be working with in your territory. Once this training is complete, you will return to your own territory where our trained staff will meet you to make sure the initial installation of tower and customer equipment is performed correctly and is working properly. You will have phone and/or on-line access to our technicians on duty whose purpose is to provide you with advice and technical support during your hours of installation. The entire training program will last up to 10 days and additional training is available upon request.
Our Full-time Support Staff provides Franchisee’s with daily guidance on all facets of the business. In addition, we provide customer support services for your customers when they have questions regarding their Internet access. We provide billing, scheduling and other administrative services along with network monitoring and maintenance to ensure your network is operating at its peak performance. Customers can call our toll-free support center free of charge to address their Internet questions. A comprehensive Operations Manual is provided during training that answers many questions that will arise during the course of your daily operations. Our annual Owners Meeting provides a “think tank” opportunity to improve our business model and implement feedback, and a “best practices” approach for all Air Advantage owners and management. Since our compensation is based on your growth and improved revenue, our staff is readily available to answer any question and to provide pro-active planning of your network growth.
