Benefits of Being a WISPA Member

WISPA is a trade association of Wireless Internet Service Providers. Most are locally- or regionally-based operators. WISPA’s members share knowledge and other resources with each other to make the industry stronger; often as competitors!

WISPA was founded in 2005 and has steadily grown year-over-year ever since. This growth demonstrates the benefits of our members working together in a community to achieve the common goals of promoting the development, advancement and unification of the Wireless Internet Service Provider industry.
