A recently-awarded FCC grant to expand rural access to high-speed broadband will focus on the end-of-the-line users. Wisper ISP is the company that won that grant. CEO Nathan Stooke says they’ll be able to build off what’s already been accomplished with previous programs.
Last summer, Wisper bought two companies providing service to the lake area and has been building those networks in preparation for this project. Stooke says a lot of customers in Camden County in particular will benefit.
All told, Wisper will spend over $176 million to expand service across 65 Missouri counties.
