EdgePresence, currently deploying its edge data centers (EDCs) across 20 markets throughout the United States, has become a member of WISPA – the fixed wireless broadband industry in the US.

EdgePresence joins WISPA in its ongoing efforts to improve access to and streamline broadband connectivity.
“We are excited about our partnership with WISPA and for the collaborative work in the industry that we will do to address many of today’s business challenges such as increasing data volumes, cost of bandwidth, latency, the need to convert data into actionable insights real-time,” said Doug Recker, Founder and President of EdgePresence. “In alignment with WISPA’s mission to support communities in their quest for fast and reliable broadband, EdgePresence edge data centers densify and expand networks to the true edge, enabling businesses to enjoy lower latency, lower cost of bandwidth, and flexible, scalable infrastructure options that support current and future technologies.”
Wireless Internet Service Providers
WISPA’s members are composed of fixed Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) and the industry that supports fixed wireless broadband including equipment suppliers, support services, and other components needed to run a successful business.
“We are proud to welcome EdgePresence as one of our newest members to the WISPA community, an environment that aims to support the success of fixed wireless providers, ensure customer satisfaction and foster industry growth through robust 21st century
