    New open Internet transparency obligations go into effect on June 11, and the new rules require more detailed disclosures to consumers than what has been required since 2015. It is critical that broadband providers understand the rules and how they can comply, and avoid FCC and FTC enforcement action. WISPA President Claude Aiken will host Steve Coran, WISPA's Washington Counsel for this live 1-hour webinar where they'll discuss what WISPs need to do to comply with the new rules.

    “Thanks to everyone for their help, it’s the best of WISPA when everyone pitches in to help a WISP in trouble.”
           --- Forbes Mercy, President of Washington Broadband, Inc.

    “WISPA has become our eyes, ears, and voice for keeping us informed and speaking on our behalf regarding new FCC regulations and other governmental legislation that could directly affect our business.”
           --- Jay Domingue, Radio Communications Service

    “WISPA has provided focus and glue cementing together the many eclectic interests of the WISP industry. Everything from business centric urban operators like us to residential rural operators. ”
           --- Graeme Gibson, President & CEO of Computers & Tele-Comm, Inc.
