Mascoutah, IL (February 9, 2021) – Wisper ISP, Inc. is a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP). Wisper Internet has been offering satellite as an alternative to their fixed wireless technology for residents in Illinois since 2015. The Wisper Team is expanding its satellite service to the rest of their network in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

Theresa Pointon of St. Libory, IL has been a Satellite Internet customer of Wisper’s since moving to the area in January 2020. Theresa had this to say about her service, “I’ve been happy with our Satellite service. It has helped my kids do online learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

When asked about the service offering expansion, Wisper’s Founder and CEO, Nathan Stooke stated, “The Wisper Team is excited to be adding satellite as a service offering across our entire network. It means we’ll be able to get more rural Americans connected; helping to close the gap on the Digital Divide. As Wisper continues to grow, we understand that each area is different and will require the right tool for the right job.”

Fixed Wireless Technology uses elevated structures, such as water towers, cell towers, grain elevators, and more to reach a resident’s home. Current capabilities require the equipment on a resident’s roof to have a ‘line of sight’ to the elevated structure. That means no trees or terrain can be blocking the visual path. A resident will reside no more than 3 -5 miles from the elevated structure to receive the desired signal strength. Satellite differs from fixed wireless because its equipment floats in orbit between 100 and 24,000 miles away from the Earth’s surface instead of on a nearby elevated structure.
