Wisper Internet’s expansion to Dade County is due to their success in the Connect America Fund Phase II (CAF II).

The equipment deployed will be fixed wireless technology and it will be found on the three elevated structures listed below.

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.
