Vispa ISP Moots Urban/City Wireless Broadband Service
By: MarkJ - 09 February, 2008 (9:24 AM)

The Managing Director of UK ISP Vispa Internet, James Ormerod, has hinted that the provider is in talks with several urban/city centre councils with regards to providing wireless broadband on a grand scale.

Vispa, a small Cheshire based company, will soon be ten years old and was recently nominated in a shortlist for the ISPA's ‘Best Consumer ISP’ award. The ISP hasn't said much about its plans but offered the following quote:

“VISPA is in talks with several urban/city centre councils with regards to providing wireless broadband on a grand scale, i.e. people able to subscribe to ultra fast broadband in the comfort of their homes without ever going near a telephone point.

This is part of our continuing efforts to make technology and the internet more readily accessible to everyone, because we are a smaller operation we are uniquely able to utilise our resources in the development of relevant local technologies and make considerable improvements in our local area.
”

Like many other providers, Vispa has also spoken of its intention to introduce ‘up to’ 24Mbps ADSL2+ services later in the year.
