The WISP ECON workshop: Broadband Economics and Network Planning for WISPS

CostQuest and Vetro FiberMap are holding a half-day workshop on WISP economics. This event focuses on building a business case, assessing expansion, deployment of new technology, and managing the network, opportunities to boost your bottom line by understanding the economics of deployment, understanding funding opportunities and CAFII obligations, and much more.

CostQuest serves as the frontrunner in designing, developing, and implementing economic models for the telecommunications industry.  We are known for our work with the FCC on the Connect America Fund, and for working with ISP’s, large and small, and building business cases, mapping and modeling network design.

VETRO FiberMap is an innovative, cloud-based GIS platform that has been purpose-built for fiber optic mapping and management. The VETRO platform is developed to meet the needs of broadband providers, municipalities, and engineering companies that are conceptualizing, designing, and building the next generation of internet infrastructure.
