Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) play an integral role in delivering internet connectivity to areas where wired connectivity is not economically viable. Rural, remote, and mountainous regions are the primary areas where WISPs thrive. In many cases, WISPs are the only option for connectivity, making them a vital component of a nation’s telecom infrastructure.
