At Preseem, we believe our commitment to the fixed wireless industry is bigger than just delivering a great QoE (Quality of Experience) monitoring and optimization platform. For us, it’s about bringing transparency backed by data that helps WISP owners/ operators make the best decisions to improve their network and have happier customers. This is the motivation for this first-of-its-kind Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018. 

The Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018 leverages Preseem’s data set to provide a view into fixed wireless networks across providers and different kinds of equipment. It was officially released on the first day of Wispapalooza 2018 during our QoE Seminar, in the presence of over 60 WISP owners and operators. Preseem’s QoE platform ingests over 5 billion metrics every day  from tens of thousands of fixed wireless subscribers and thousands of access points.

It is our hope that this information is useful to WISPs as a way to benchmark their businesses against the wider broadband ecosystem and also helps others understand fixed wireless networks.


Key Insights from the Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018


  • Fixed wireless networks show little throughput degradation during peak which indicates they are not heavily oversubscribed
  • The average fixed wireless subscriber uses 3.5 Mb/s when active
  • The average fixed wireless subscriber uses 5.6 GB of data per day for a total of 167 GB per month
  • Cambium and Ubiquiti access point equipment dominate fixed wireless deployments
  • Fixed wireless networks leverage wider channel width to deliver service to a higher number of subscribers vs. delivering higher throughput to the same number of subscribers per access point


For detailed QoE insights on fixed wireless subscribers, access points, real-world comparison between top access point models, use of channel width by WISPs and much more, download the e-copy of the Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018 now.
