What is a WISP or Wireless Internet Service Provider?
WISPs use fixed wireless broadband technology to deliver the same high speeds and service of traditional broadband providers, but delivered wirelessly, as opposed to through buried cables.
Typically, a small antenna is placed on your home or office that receives a direct signal from a WISP tower nearby. Unlike technology used for cellular data, the wireless connection from your home "end point" and the tower allows for fast reliable service via a fixed wireless connection. This prevents the interrupted data experienced by cell phone users that often happens as signals bounce from one tower to another. See why PC World says WISPs are the future of Internet service.
