Connect America Fund

The FCC has reconstructed the Connect America Fund from the Universal Service Fund to promote a competitive auction system that is moving our nation forward to bridge the digital divide. Over the next 10 years, $1.49 billion will be invested to develop advanced broadband services for rural Americans in over 700,000 homes across 45 U.S. States. Remarkably, 99.75% of the homes and small businesses will be provided at least 25/3 Mbps service, while 53% are scheduled to receive 100/20 Mbps or better. Our clients are named “provisional winners” to serve approximately 300,000 locations across 21 western U.S. States.

Let us know how WISP Partners can assist you with the rapid set of changes taking place now.

Capital Formation

Public funding, including CAF and other state initiatives have attracted private capital to move from passive to active investing. New capital investments require a disciplined approach for decision-making. The process of identifying sources of debt and equity financing can be time-consuming, uncertain, and risky. Take advantage of our expertise to create your proposal to attract and qualify investors.

Our team has successfully closed transactions from $2M to $38M to develop middle mile and last mile services by bringing the best combination of grant, debt, and equity financings. Call us to confidentially discuss your capital requirements.

Mergers & Aquisitions

The rural broadband service industry is under-going rapid change. Strategic mergers and acquisitions are being pursued with a heightened sense of urgency. Whether you plan to buy or sell, the process requires seasoned professionals to develop and execute the transaction and integration plan.

With over 50 years of combined experience, our team can help you to buy, sell, and integrate synergistic businesses.
