AWL = Angie Wireless Extreme
AWE = Angie Wired Extreme
With Angie you have three options for business connectivity:
- Wireless Extreme – Home Office
- Wireless Extreme – Business
- Wired Extreme
Difference between AWL Home and AWL Home Office
You can use AWL Home Office for your commercial means, while AWL Home is primarily meant for household access. Your AWL Home or AWL Home Office subscription cannot be shared with 3rd parties outside your home (e.g. colleagues at work, customers etc.).
Difference between AWL Home Office and AWE
A shopkeeper (clothing store, dry cleaner, bakery etc.) can subscribe to AWL Home Office too, but offices and establishments where people can sit or work, a Wireless Extreme – Business or Wired Extreme subscription is necessary.
The difference between AWL Home Office and AWE lays in a) the location, b) your company purpose, and c) the connectivity and access method.
Difference between Angie Wireless Extreme – Business and Angie Wired Extreme
- With Wired Extreme, Angie lays a 10-Gigabit fiber connection in your building, and the Gigabit service will be obtained from one or more Access Points in your own building (and not from a distance).
- With Wired Extreme you also have the opportunity to connect your own company network (UTP/Ethernet) or fiber optic network to Angie’s equipment in the building.

Let Angie connect your building with 10 Gigabit Fibre Optic service!
We also have another valuable proposition if you live or work in one of our 3,000 pre-approved buildings or in the same postcode. Angie can, in mutual agreement with you and/or your landlord/building manager, realise a 10 Gigabit fibre optic connection (2.5 – 3 months lead time) to your building.
Angie has a unique proposition for building owners: 10 Gigabit Fibre Optic Wired Extreme
There are major benefits with Wired Extreme for you and your building:
- Angie is responsible for the whole process and the financing of it: the fibre optic connection to and in your building, activation, transport and IP-transit.
- Angie will place an Access Point or Extremer (micro access point) inside or close to your unit (inside the building), that is directly connected to the 10 Gigabit fibre connection in your building.
- Angie realises and finances the in-building part too (materials, devices, access points, etc.).
- Angie can also connect your own company network (wiring) and devices to Angie’s equipment. This is highly recommended for business users.
- Angie’s 10 Gigabit connection in your building is future-proof. When you’re ready in the future for a physical fibre optic connection to your unit, you can easily be upgraded to Angie’s Fibre to the Office service.
- Your tenants/customers/colleagues/employees will realise and appreciate that you are dedicated to increase productivity and efficiency by subscribing to the most advanced Internet service available in the market.
- With a Wired Extreme network in your building, your direct environment instantly becomes more attractive for third parties: tenants, suppliers, partners.
- You’ll get a special router that picks up the wireless signal from the nearest Access Point or Extremer. Through this router you’ll be able to connect and work as you are used to – or you connect your company’s own network cabling to Angie’s network equipment.
You can view the map below or in this link with a preliminary overview of pre-approved buildings. This list is growing every day.
How does it work?
- The 3,000 buildings and most surrounding buildings (in the same postcode or radius of 50-150 meters) are pre-approved by Angie. This means that these buildings can be connected with a 10 Gigabit fibre optic connection as soon as the building owner or manager gives their explicit permission (we call that Right of Entry). If you’re working in one of those (surrounding) buildings, you should really get your landlord or manager moving. Please note: Angie only accepts to connect buildings that make life easier for Angie, and we do not engage in acquiring building entry rights. We have to be approached by a tenant or the building owner/manager.
- The Right of Entry is required for the fibre connection (drop/lateral). Angie is solely responsible for the financing and other liabilities related to the system/network and fibre connectivity in your building. The building owner will never be liable for costs of connection, construction or any other operational liabilities. The Right of Entry agreement is a short but comprehensive document of just two pages, and it makes clear what the expectations are between Angie and the building owner/manager. You can download the word version here.
- As soon as the Right of Entry is agreed upon by both parties (building owner and Angie), Angie will order the fibre optic connection. There are no further conditions or reservations other than that listed in the 2-pager. Realisation/delivery of the 10 Gig connection to your building may take anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks after the agreement. A delivery timeline can be found on page 2 of the Right of Entry agreement.
- Together with you (or the building owner/manager) Angie will plan and arrange a site survey and other important aspects. We request this online form to be completed by you. If you don’t hear from us in 48 hours, make sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Search for your post code (e.g. EC4) and then zoom in to see whether your building or neighbourhood is a pre-approved fibre zone.

Of course, even if your building doesn’t get a fibre connection, you can still subscribe for the Wired Extreme service. However, this is only an option in areas as indicated by Angie. (Or see our map, above.)
