About This Report


While major telecommunication carriers, cable providers and satellite providers battle each other to satisfy consumers' insatiable thirst for data services, the American countryside has been left behind. The high cost of bringing service to sparsely populated areas has discouraged these giants from delivering broadband to rural regions of the United States, leaving room for the development of the Wireless Internet Service Providers industry. Low capital intensity, light regulation and low barriers to entry have encouraged new entrants to compete in the industry, so the majority of industry enterprises are small, private operations that serve a limited number of households and businesses in their local communities. However, the industry is expected to consolidate over the next five years, as companies invest in improving technology and face growing competition.

Wireless internet service providers (WISPs), also known as fixed wireless broadband providers, use fixed terrestrial wireless networks to provide internet access, usually in rural areas. The majority of WISPs use unlicensed spectrum and are locally based. This industry does not include mobile broadband services provided by major telecommunications companies.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
