The Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA) signed a new partnership agreement with towerco Tillman Infrastructure. They say the agreement provides special lease terms that will allow WISPA members to deploy and expand their networks quickly and cost-effectively while simultaneously supporting WISPA.
“WISPA members are innovating in their rapid deployment of broadband and we want to support them in any way we can,” says WISPA President/CEO Claude Aiken. “Tillman is offering WISPs an opportunity to save on capital expenditures, convert to sustainable operating expenditures for years to come, and get on a tower more quickly.”
“This new strategic partnership will allow WISPA members to quickly scale and strengthen their networks while also benefiting WISPA as a recognized advocacy organization,” said Tillman Infrastructure CEO Bill Hague. He continued, “the work WISPA and its members do is absolutely critical in closing the broadband gap and we feel a responsibility to help. With the shift to working/learning from home, this has never been more important.”
The details of this new partnership for WISPA members include:
- Priority access to Tillman’s nationwide portfolio of wireless infrastructure
- Maximum flexibility for equipment configurations and changes
- Streamlined application and leasing process
- 30-day turnaround time from application receipt to NTP
- Waived application fee
Tillman Infrastructure will donate the first month’s rent of any lease signed by a WISPA member organization under this partnership directly to WISPA. Members wishing to participate in this opportunity should contact Alex Schwartz.
