Hotwire Communications, an award-winning, South Florida-based Internet Service Provider (ISP) and telecommunications services provider, is proud to announce that the company has been accepted as the newest member of the Wireless Broadband Alliance.

Founded in 2003, the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) is a global organization comprised of technology companies of all sizes from around the world, connecting them to the latest Wi-Fi initiatives. The organization accomplishes this through programs and activities that address its members’ business and technical issues, as well as their diverse opportunities.

As cutting-edge technologies play an increasingly prominent role in all of our lives by fostering stronger connections, enabling new conveniences, and bridging divides in equity, the WBA’s dedication to setting global standards for technology companies, promoting industry leadership, and encouraging the adoption of the latest Wi-Fi technologies has never been more important.

Hotwire Communications is no stranger to setting industry standards and taking a trailblazing approach to technological innovation, having been the first ISP to commit to an all-fiber network backbone for all deployments, the first in Florida to offer Gigabit-speed Internet to residential customers, and the first in the state to offer both Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services to consumers.

The company has over 20 years of experience in designing and deploying wireless deployments throughout large commercial and residential properties, and has led the way in utilizing innovative wireless technology to connect large city and public spaces, allowing local governments to implement forward-thinking Smart City solutions. Hotwire’s team of engineers and Wi-Fi architects is also comprised of industry thought leaders who have remained at the forefront of emerging technologies through continuing education and best practice sharing, resulting in better services for the company’s customers.

Hotwire has been recognized by numerous third-party organizations and industry publications, including being named the 2020 Independent Operator of the Year by Cablefax, and being ranked as the 2020 Fastest Business ISP, 2020 Fastest ISP in the Southeast United States, and 2021 Best Gaming ISP in the Southeast United States by PCMag. The company’s dedication to providing all customers with a best-in-class, white glove and concierge-style customer service experience has received numerous accolades, most recently including two Silver 2021 Stevie Awards.
