Free E-Book: WISP Fundamentals

We believe in the future of Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs). To assist you in building your WISP, we're happy to provide some foundational material for startups and managers. Our lead engineer, Herbert Wolverson, has made the first four chapters of his E-Book on WISP Fundamentals available for free on this site. We hope to continue adding chapters in the future, eventually providing you with everything you need to know to manage a WISP.
