WiSpan Internet is a wireless internet service provider, otherwise known as a "WISP", or wireless ISP. WiSpan has been providing high-speed internet access since 2006 and currently has service in areas of Greene, Sullivan, and Daviess counties.
As a company, our primary focus is to offer internet service in rural areas where there would otherwise be no other service available or be limited to options such as dial-up, satellite, or cellular connections which are slow, unreliable, are high latency, and have data limits. We have a very high standard of quality and strict signal requirements for our wireless network. Regrettably, this means we are not able to offer service to everyone in a potential coverage area. For those who are fortunate enough to be in our coverage area, our high standards will ensure that we are able to offer those people a fast, solid connection. Moreover, we invest heavily in network upgrades, and in recent years we have upgraded many of our towers to support speeds of up to 40 Mbps. Additionally, we are currently researching, investing, and implementing technologies to support the next generation of fixed-wireless internet service in the coming years that supports speeds of over 100 Mbps. We are currently bringing this technology online in a limited number of areas to test its performance and reliability.
The connection we provide is fast, reliable, and has no data limit, so you're free to watch unlimited amounts of YouTube, Netflix, and other streaming video services. Our connection is independent of phone and cable services, so you may use it as a standalone service and replace, remove, or supplement your existing phone or TV package. Unlike satellite internet, there is no high latency, lag, or delay and can be used for gaming, Skype, FaceTime, other video calls, or any internet phone service. As an enthusiastic cable guy once said, "You can do your shopping at home, or play Mortal Kombat with a friend in Vietnam. There's no end to the possibilities." -Ernie "Chip" Douglas
So, if you're looking for a fast, reliable, unlimited internet connection and think you may be in one of our coverage areas, then please fill out our sign-up form and we'll be in touch.
