Narcissa, OK (May 17th, 2021) – Wisper ISP, LLC is increasing their Internet speeds and service area. Previously, Wisper offered speeds up to 25Mbps. Additional eligible residents will be able to preschedule their installation appointments for the week of May 31st.
Vivian P. of MO has been a Wisper Internet customer since 2019. When asked about her service, Vivian said, “My home is right by the tower with Wisper’s equipment. I could throw a rock and almost hit it – that’s how close we are! Since we are located 16 miles into the country, we don’t get very good cell service. Luckily, we can connect our phones to our Wisper service, and it improves the signal. We also use it for online banking and email.” Vivian and her husband have recommended Wisper to several of their neighbors. Many of them also joining the Wisper family.”
Wisper Internet’s expansion to Jasper County is due to their success in the Connect America Fund Phase II (CAF II). CAF II was a rural broadband auction held by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2018. Wisper was named the winner of $220.3 million in the auction; funds were allocated across the following six states: Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
The equipment deployed will be fixed wireless technology and will be found on the elevated structure listed below. Fixed Wireless Technology uses elevated structures, such as water towers, cell towers, grain elevators, etc. to reach a resident’s home. Current capabilities do require the equipment on a resident’s roof to have ‘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 3-8.7 miles from the elevated structure to receive the desired signal strength.
