Cunniffe & Helm are pleased to announce that we have become members of UK WISPA, the independent wireless internet service providers association.
With the increasing push for 100% broadband coverage in the UK, and the 10Mbps Universal Service Obligation coming into effect in 2020, wireless service providers are going to play an increasingly important part in the UK telecoms mix. The government may be pushing for a “Full Fibre Britain”, a goal we wholeheartedly support, but in many rural locations this is unlikely to be viable. Fixed wireless access, deployed correctly, has the ability to offer lower cost, faster-deployed solutions for superfast and ultrafast connectivity, filling this enviable gap.
Wireless providers have a lot to do to raise knowledge of and the reputation of the industry. UK WISPA we hope will continue to play a key part in this. Cunniffe & Helm have long been working in the Wireless Internet Service Providers market, with expertise in network design, wireless design and wholesale access, and by joining the organisation we hope to support and encourage UK WISPA’s work.
