5 JAB named Operator of Year by Wireless Internet Service Provider Association November 4, 2013 JAB Lauded for Helping Close the Digital Divide By Delivering Wireless Broadband to Families and Businesses Throughout Rural America Denver (PR Web) November 4, 2013 / JAB Broadband (JAB), the nation s largest fixed wireless broadband service provider, has been named Operator of the Year by the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA). JAB is an industry leader in providing high-speed broadband Internet and digital voice service to over 150,000 residential and business customers across 14 states throughout the Rocky Mountain, Midwest and Southwest regions. There are more than 3 million U.S. customers using fixed wireless; with WISPA representing many of the companies which provide this critical service. Rural communities continue to lack access to the high-speed broadband services enjoyed by their urban counterparts. Without wireless Internet service provider s efforts, many remote locations would not have high-speed Internet access and many semi-urban areas would not have a choice of service providers. WISPA recognizes and applauds JAB Broadband in bringing wireless broadband service to communities and families across America, said Rick Harnish, WISPA Executive Director. Through their efforts, JAB successfully embodies the full range of benefits and quality which wireless Internet service providers offer their customers. JAB recently received the award at the 2013 WISPAPALOOZA conference, which was attended by over 1,000 service providers, equipment vendors and community/business leaders. Our goal has always been to raise the bar for rural broadband service and we are honored to be recognized as a leader in the fast-growing fixed wireless industry, said Jeff Kohler, JAB Broadband s Co-Founder and Chief Development Officer.
