Q: What license do I require to start a wireless Internet service provider?
A: At present the regulatory environment is a bit of a minefield and quick and easy answers not easy to come by. WAPA does require that full members have some form of telecommunications licence. There is provision for probationary members to join if they can demonstrate that applications have been made for licencing. WAPA members represent the largest operators in the industry and the collective wealth of knowledge on regulatory issues and licencing is available to members. If you require in depth advice on particular licencing issues and how to go about applying for licences, we can refer you to professional organisations that provide this kind of service for WAPA and its members.
