Washington, DC, March 15, 2019 – The Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA) is encouraged by today’s FCC action, which creates a rulemaking to implement aspects of the MOBILE NOW Act.  Small rural providers – like our members, who provide fixed wireless broadband to millions of Americans – face a multitude of challenges in serving their communities. 

Statement of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA) for today's Senate hearing on "The Impact of Broadband Investments in Rural America"

Washington, DC, March 12, 2019 – Approximately 24 million Americans – many living in rural communities – lack adequate broadband access.  Though hundreds of billions of dollars of private and public investment have flowed into U.S. networks since 2005, this stubborn rural gap remains.  WISPA is pleased that witnesses at today’s hearing, which included WISPA member Justin Forde of Midcontinent Communications based in Sioux Falls, SD, recognize the need for federal subsidies to help bridge this gap, for accurate mapping to determine where subsidies are allocated, and for government agencies to avoid subsidizing broadband overbuilds.  WISPA also appreciates witness statements acknowledging the importance of spectrum for quick and affordable broadband deployment in places where sparsely populated areas do not justify the investment in fiber.
