Frequently Asked Questions:

Unlimited Listeners

Plans are limited to 1000 simultaneous connections. Plans are suitable for commercial broadcasters. For more than 1000 simultaneous connections, contact us for a custom quote.

Unmetered Bandwidth

Unlimited Bandwidth is supplied under a Fair Use Policy whereby your radio can use as much bandwidth as required unless it affects the performance of other users on shared servers. If your radio reaches this point and is seen as a high-volume server we will contact the customer to discuss options and we will cap Listener limits to less number.


Some broadcasters prefer to host their content in the “cloud”. The cloud is just a nickname for Internet hosted servers. Cloud broadcasting uses a feature called Auto DJ. Rather than having dedicated computers or software, you can upload your MP3 sound files to your Auto DJ account in the cloud on our network and broadcast from there. While you don’t have as much control over nuances like audio processing or complex music rotations, it is a good way to create an automated broadcast solution without needing any additional software, hardware or dedicated Internet connection.

What is live streaming?

Live streaming is the distribution of your content over the Internet to your audience in real time. Most AM/FM stations use live streaming because they create their own content and simulcast it on the Internet. There are several ways to create and distribute content. For live streaming all you need is a PC or Mac with an audio or mic input, Radio Broadcast software (Many free or paid options available) and an Internet connection. Simply plug your audio mixer/DJ console into the audio input or USB on your computer, turn on the software and it will send the stream to us. Our Cloud Service powers your stream to reach your audience worldwide. If you need help or have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us here

What type of Internet connection do I need?

You will need a DSL/Cable (or faster) Internet connection. We do not provide these services. If you don’t already have an Internet connection you will need to contact an Internet Service Provider (ISP) like Xfinity, Centurylink.
