I thought the list might be interested to know that yesterday we turned up a 73 mile link to a new WISP starting up in Dalton, GA. This is our first connection to another WISP and while the 73 mile 45Mbps link took some planning and a good amount of leg work, it ended up quite well. Not only was the WISP in question able to benefit from our lower bandwidth and voice costs available in Atlanta, but we were able to get access to the local LEC for savings on voice termination in the area. Additionally, we now have the ability to sell wholesale routes in an expanded coverage area to our existing CLEC customers. Our next step is to help this WISP get going and introduce them to WISPA.

If any other WISPs are in the southeast, let's look at connecting. We currently have plans to buildout into Tennessee and Alabama.
