Of 400+ subscribers, about half are 1km or less, But from there they range all the way up to 17km with a large number in the 5-10km range. So for us, a small CPE with a sweet spot around 1km would be good. I suspect the C5 will be good to around 5km, hopefully more. But we do need a CPE that can be made to really go the distance when we need to.

@Frank thanks for the info! Here’s the link to the specs for the C5c connectorized for long range higher gain dishes that will debut in April 2016.


Good morning Jamie. Can you give us an update on when we will be able to get the C5c? Distance is a huge challenge for us.

We have installed the C5c radios with ubiqiti rocket dish antenna. It is amazing how well they work. Thank you for bringing this option to those of us operating in the middle of nowhere.


Maximum number of customers can carry c5c
