Gering, NE (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Inventive Media, a consulting firm serving the needs of the Wireless Internet Service Provider industry, announced today the WISP Directory website (http://www.wispdirectory.com), the most comprehensive list of WISPs (Wireless Internet Service Providers) in the United States.
Entries in the WISP Directory include zip codes serviced, customer ratings, independent reviews and WISP Technology used by each WISP. A coverage map showing the total area serviced by WISP operators will also be provided later in the first quarter of 2009. The directory currently has over 1700 verified WISP operators in the United States, and over 180 entries for WISP related businesses.
Matt Larsen, owner of Inventive Media, commented, "For several years, there has been little more than anecdotal evidence of the size and scope of the WISP Industry. Vendors, consultants, operators and government officials have been looking for this kind of information for several years. This is the first time this amount of WISP data has been put together into one public, searchable directory."
The WISP Directory site also makes it easier for potential customers to search for WISP operators that can provide broadband Internet services to their home or business.
"WISP operators serve many underserviced areas and can provide equivalent or better services than the telephone or cable companies in those areas. One of the goals of the WISP Directory is to make the connections between customers who want to find a service provider and the WISPs who can deliver the service they want," said Larsen. "There is an entire industry of independent WISPs providing service to rural and underserved areas, and providing a competitive third option for people who are dissatisfied with the telco or cable Internet providers in their areas. The WISP Directory is here to help put the WISP Industry on the map and show that there are alternatives."
Basic listings in the WISP Directory are free of charge. The directory is available at http://www.wispdirectory.com.
