Dial-Up access is not a scalable service due to its bandwidth limitations of 56 Kbps.
|WIRELESS ACCESS is on a secured, encrypted circuit, which makes it less susceptible to hackers.|
|Reliability||Dial-Up access is faced with the sometimes-tedious process of dialing in for Internet access.||WIRELESS ACCESS is a fully scalable service; however, a site visit may be required for speed upgrade.

|Price||Dial-Up access can have costly per-monthly usage/toll charges in addition to Internet access.
Dial-Up access must be provided with individual lines and modems for multiple end-users to have simultaneous access.
|WIRELESS ACCESS is on an encrypted dedicated circuit and therefore receives higher speeds.
WIRELESS ACCESS may have costly start-up with install of radio and antennae.
WIRELESS ACCESS typically is one half the recurring charges of traditional leased telephone line costs.
