Modem FAQs

What is the Purpose of a Modem for my Business Internet Connection?

What is a Modem?

A modem is something that you must have if you want to be able to access the Internet. A modem converts data into a signal that your devices can recognize in order to connect your business network to the wider internet.

Purpose of a Modem 

A modem is the connection point between your business network and your high speed internet. It brings the internet into your business and translates the broadband signal from your business line and relays that information to your router or computer. A router can then provide a "route" for other devices to connect to the internet.

Can I use my own modem for Business Internet service?

SkyBest modems are preconfigured for SkyBest Broadband Internet Service.  If you would like to use your customer-owned modem, please bring your modem by our SkyLine/SkyBest Customer Service Center for testing.  Modem/router combinations are incompatible with SkyLine/SkyBest service.
