March 18, 2021 – Wisper ISP, LLC has added a new tower to their existing network in Kell, IL. Eligible residents in Centralia, Dix, Kell, and Walnut Hill will be able to preschedule their installation appointments for the week of March 29th.
Wisper’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Shannon Shores is from Centralia and had this to say about the news, “I am C-Town proud and excited to bring Wisper to my hometown. These areas desperately need reliable, high-speed Internet and I am glad we can provide that for Centralia and the surrounding areas.”
The location of the new tower able to offer Internet speeds up-to 100 Mbps is 1343 Old Salem Road; Kell, IL 62853. 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 -5 miles from the elevated structure to receive the desired signal strength.
Eligible residents will be able to receive the following speeds and prices:
- Surf: 10 Mbps X 2 Mbps for $50/month
- Surf Plus: 15 Mbps X 3 Mbps for $65/month
- Surf Preferred: 25 Mbps X 5 Mbps for $75/month Surf Pro: 50 Mbps X 5 Mbps for $85/month
- Surf Extreme: 100 Mbps X 20 Mbps for $105/month
