Preseem’s acclaimed Fixed Wireless Network Report is back! See all-new insights in the 2020 Q3 Fall Edition!
Since the release of our last report, the fixed wireless industry has experienced a multitude of changes. The global spread of COVID-19 has altered the way workplaces and institutions carry out processes and procedures, giving rise to collaborative services that allow individuals to work and learn from home, Furthermore, entire industries have been shaken up, and those too slow to adapt have faced devastating consequences. Naturally, the fixed wireless industry has not been immune to feeling the impact of these changes as well.
An increased reliance on Internet-connected devices and services has put increased pressure on Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs). Currently, WISPs serve over 6 million Americans, and many have stepped up over the last few months by offering free Internet services to those who need it the most. Moreover, an informal survey administered by WISPA found that, since the start of the pandemic, the majority of WISPs have upgraded their last-mile and backhaul capacity.
With so much going on, it’s no wonder that the changes occurring within the fixed wireless industry seem more relevant now than ever before. As the world’s reliance on the Internet continues to swell, WISPs remain committed to ensuring that people in even the most rural of regions are connected.
To ensure that Internet providers continue to deliver the best service possible, it is essential to understand the real-world experience of fixed wireless subscribers, networks, and equipment within the fixed wireless industry.
Accordingly, Preseem is excited to announce the release of the 2020 Q3 Fall Edition of it’s Fixed Wireless Network Report!
The Preseem Fixed Wireless Network Report leverages Preseem’s data set to provide a view into fixed wireless networks across providers and different kinds of equipment. As such, all the data in this report comes from fixed wireless networks. It is our hope that WISPs will use this information to benchmark their businesses against the wider broadband ecosystem.
