High Speed Data Links (Up to 54 Mbps), Fast Installation of the Base Station (one or two days), Fast Installation for your customers (2 to 6 hours installation per site), Cost effective access for prolonged use and multiple users, Reliable and instant 24 hour Internet access The WISP can be obtained from SA Wireless as ready to install Base Station and CPE (Customer Premises Equipment).
The following material is meant to help you with what steps are necessary to start a Wireless Internet Service Provision System (WISP). Under WISP, we understand an integrated Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) system of connecting customers to the Internet.
Q1: Do you expect to have the necessary customer basis for a Wireless ISP System in your city? Generally speaking, you should consider the WISP just like permanent leased line connections to the customers, but at a higher speed and lower cost.
It is not a mobile service, at least in most of the cases, because: -- Direct line of sight is required between the central node and the client, and -- Low power radios and high gain antennas are used for the wireless links. The Wireless ISP System is a land service operating as a Metropolitan Area Network with cells of 10 miles or 15 km.
In most cases you will need to get a permission to use the frequency, but sometimes a license might be necessary for providing wireless service. We provide our customers with copies of the necessary Certificates and Type Approval Documents that might help you to get things organized legally.
The system operates on a point to multi-point basis, and consists of a base station and several client nodes within 10 miles or 15 km. The client nodes connect to the base unit over wireless links.
For longer distances, there can be problems with ensuring the line of sight due to the Earth curvature. For example, direct line of sight can be ensured between two points located between each other at a distance of 30 km, if they are risen at 17 m height.
Top of a high building somewhere in the city Top of a building located on a hill high tower (TV or some communication tower) It is very important, that you can find such a location, where the Base Station antenna and the Base Radio Unit can be installed closely, e.g., Within a few months' moisture will be inside the cable connections, and the quality of your system will be degraded.
Q7: How to install and configure the client sites with the wireless router and directional antenna? Performing link test between the base unit and client router should do final adjustment.
Usually the client LAN's may have the TCP/IP protocol running with unregistered IP addresses. Alternatively, you may provide the client with a subnet from the network addresses that you have as an ISP.
The Ethernet address of wireless router is default gateway for all hosts on the clients LAN. The following should be considered when setting up default gateways for all client routers and the bridge.
Note that the base unit is a bridge and not a router, therefore it does not serve as a TCP/IP gateway. If you use one of the wireless routers as a gateway to connect the wireless network to your/ISPs network, then use the radio interfaces IP address as the default gateway for all client routers and the base unit.
Read textbooks and RFCs once more if you have forgotten the basic things about IP networking and routing. We offer Worldwide Installation and Training Service for the Systems you purchase at SA Wireless.
Sites should be prepared for installations (place to mount the antenna and the radio equipment, 110 or 220V power and Ethernet cabling should be available there). We charge $300.- per day and per installer plus travel time from South Africa (RIX) and back.

Broadband has released its October 2019 customer satisfaction ratings, which shows that Supersonic and Cyberspace are the best Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in South Africa. The customer satisfaction ratings further revealed that MTN and Viacom are the top mobile operators in the country.
The table below ranks SouthAfrica’s prominent ISPs based on the average ratings received through Broadband’s web-based speed test and mobile app. While the results are in line with previous rankings, the gap between the leaders (Supersonic and Cyberspace) and the chasing pack (Vox and Cool Ideas) grew.
Automated page speed optimizations for fast site performance Its easy really, you need a few fat envelopes, one marked with “CASA”, and the other ones blank, for whoever stands in your way next. Other than the physical infrastructure, leases, radio equipment, staff, regulations and competition it's pretty easy.
Its easy really, you need a few fat envelopes, one marked with “CASA”, and the other ones blank, for whoever stands in your way next. Other than the physical infrastructure, leases, radio equipment, staff, regulations and competition it's pretty easy. There is also the licensing as some Wisps are moving out of the 5GHz range in search for better performance on backbone links.
Lots of negative views in this thread, and it shows how many people have had bad experiences with Wisps. Running a WISP (or any ISP for that matter) is not the get-rich-quick game that has been in the past. There are virtually no areas where there is no service, so you will be competing with other businesses and the competition is fierce.
I'm meeting with my funder perhaps this weekend to discuss the second stage of my project of giving people access to cheap and fast internet. And I have absolutely no WISP experience, but since I started an ISP in my building a WISP can't be that difficult Great logic here. I loan money to my friends and family, starting a bank can't be that difficult.

There are virtually no areas where there is no service, so you will be competing with other businesses and the competition is fierce. You clearly haven't done your homework if you're asking for help here and having a meeting with the statement I know nothing about a wisp, I would hope they pull you into line.
The medusa on the other hand also only covers for one area 90 degrees if I stand to be corrected, so getting clients will prove to be difficult at first. Best you can do is target an area that has nothing or some ***** service and then capture them, so they spread the word and then expand as business grows.
