Wireless Internet Providers

Wireless Internet providers, commonly known as Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) provide connections to their wireless Internet network systems to customers who purchase prepaid or monthly plans. No phone line or cable network is needed because wireless technology provides the Internet connection with their networks.

The first wireless Internet providers realized the potential market for Internet connections, and they took advantage of this situation in the best way they knew how. About 15 years ago, in Wyoming and in Johannesburg, South Africa, pioneers in wireless internet placed hot spots in high places and confirmed that nearby users could connect to their main Internet site.

Since then, many companies offer wireless Internet service. Providers are often cellular phone companies who offer a DSL Internet service. Some of the most popular wireless Internet providers are companies who gained their popularity through cellular phone services are Verizon and AT & T.

Verizon offers many wireless Internet provider plans that will fit anyone’s budget and needs. There are many free offers for customers who sign up for plans. The lowest priced plan is $19.99 per month and features a free wireless router. For $29.99, a customer can get the same bargain of a free wireless router plus Wi-Fi. These two plans are available if a customer signs a service contract, and there are penalties for breaking the contract before the two years are over.
