What is WISPA? The short answer, it stands for Wireless Internet Service Providers Association. All first responders and industries for the most part have associations that they belong to in order to improve what ever it is they are doing. In our case, internet service providing. According to the WISPA.org website, they list this under their "About" section;
WISPA - Broadband Without Boundaries represents the interests of the evolving wireless Internet service provider (WISP) ecosystem: small innovative entrepreneurs who provide fixed wireless, fiber and other connectivity solutions to consumers, businesses, first responders and community anchor institutions. WISPs bring critical Internet access to millions of Americans in unserved and underserved rural, suburban, urban and Tribal areas of the country, offering reliable, cost-effective and innovative service options where they did not previously exist.
Joining WISPA will keep all Hyper Fusion Co-Founders, Managers, and Staff aware of all the latest technology, processes, and regulatory changes going on in the wireless world in order to solidify our position as one of the best internet providers in The Greater Highland Lakes area. We are constantly looking for new ways to make our service and support nothing short of THE TOP INTERNET PROVIDER ACROSS THE ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS!
Moving forward Hyper Fusion is taking a STRONG stance in supporting the communities we serve thru our FUSE THE COMMUNITY INITIATIVE ( click here for more information ) and our mission to bring HIGHSPEED broadband data service to under served communities, groups, and geographic locations all over The Great State of Texas. We are in the process of finishing off what's needed to complete our fancy "booth" setup for events like the ones listed below. We are going to take a strong commitment to attending as many public/commissioners court meetings as we can in the communities we serve in order to support residents in getting local municipalities to help out in their drive for better, more reasonably priced internet/data services. Some of the types of events will be attending with our "booth" in the 2023 year are;
- WISPAMERICA 2023 ( Louisville, KY ) ( March 6-9 )
- The Blue Bonnet Festival ( Burnet, TX ) ( April 7-9 )
- Mayfest Carnival 2023 ( Marble Falls, TX ( May 4-7 )
- Burnet County Fair 2023 ( Burnet, TX ) ( June 9-10 )
- WISPApaloza 2023 ( Location TBA ) ( 1st week of Oct )
More events will be announced later on!

Basic Value Fixed Point Wireless MASSIVE Upgrade
We are officially changing up the way we do our service plans. As we have proven to be the trend setters in Central Texas, and specifically the Greater Highland Lakes area, we are doing it again.
One of the biggest things Hyper Fusion has over the competition is backing up what we advertise with actual speeds provided. Therefore, Hyper Fusion will ring in the New Year by upgrading EVERY "Basic Value" fixed point wireless plan to run "Up to" 100 Mbps Down and 50 Mbps up during low network / off peak hours at no extra charge. You do not have to do anything to receive this FREE UPGRADE in 2023!!! All the other providers advertise "up to speeds", except ours are MUCH faster. And what you pay for is your plan speed minimums.
NO LONG TERM CONTRACT REQUIRED, although contracts are available for a discount on your service, please call or inquire at email@example.com with CONTRACT DISCOUNT in the subject line.

Here is to another great year with Hyper Fusion, the fastest rural internet provider in Texas!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
That’s right folks, today we earned our BBB Accredidation and A rating. We also hold 4.5 stars out of 5 review rating on the BBB. Clearly, a marked improvement considering we started at an F rating due to the massive influx of new subscribers and only having limited staff to attend to them. Most folks don’t realize but the new sign up rate really has not yielded at all since we started. We’ve just gotten much better at processing and handling a large amount of subscribers. Where others are now out of business completely and some getting their BBB accreditation revoked, we are getting ours, getting stronger, better, obtaining more and more subscribers from incumbant WISP’s and getting folks on the new pure digital rural internet we call Hyper Fusion. =)
Hey folks, we’re super excited to announce we’re on the final leg of our long haul fiber built to provide a second completely different brand new line up there which will also double our available capacity and provide a rock solid redundant network that will RARELY go down, if ever.
This fiber will serve Kempner, River Place, and lots of other areas as we move forward into the summer time and have already completed over a dozen new fiber to the structure direct Fusion Fiber services! Our subscribers have been posting speed tests all over Facebook and in our private HFT Chat server for paying subscribers only.
Check out the photos below! =)
Hyper Fusion has officially launched a brand new speed test server!! Chris, our awesome Technology Manager has configured and installed a shiny new speed test server on our website! Make sure you check back next week as we'll be making a BIG announcement! Click the big giant red test button or your can visit https://speedtest.hyperfusiontech.com After that, just select which server your closest too and away you go!
New 10 Gbps Direct Fiber Linked Repeater Site Launched
Hyper Fusion is pleased to announce the completion of our Andice repeater site. Located just a couple km outside of town to the west. This site is directly linked with a 10 Gbps fiber line from that site ALLL the
way back to our brand new Burnet Gateway site where we've installed an all 10 Gbps router which is a massive upgrade, capable of delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput out to the internet if we need it! Below is a coverage map of our new Andice site and if we use our long range power dishes ( approx 400mm in radius and weight about 2 pounds ) we can pull 100 Mbps down and upload as far away as 25km from the site in most cases. In a few cases even further. Just click on the map below to view a high res version.
We also complete upgraded our Burnet Gateway site and constructed it right off the right of way south of Burnet, TX. This new site boasts all brand new heavy duty high thru put enterprise gear and is also independent but directly connected to the new Hyper Fusion DataCenter. We lease the office space but we have an enterprise grade server room, power wiring, data cabling, and fiber, all to notch for an insane amount of reliability.
Additionally, we were simultaneously working with one of our upstream peer providers to run a direct fiber link between our Burnet and Kempner gateway router sites so we have direct 10 / 40 / 100 Gbps link between our 2 networks allowing all subscribers to use either gateway should one or the other be down, and next time we go to screw with one of our gateway sites, we can first shift the traffic to the other fiber and then shut down the gateway site we're working on so no one loses service!
With us drilling more fiber and for longer and longer distances, Hyper Fusion now provides live service to 5 central Texas Counties ( Burnet, Lampasas, Llano, Bell, and now with this new site, Williamson County ) and we have 22 repeater sites, some direct fiber linked, some linked with high end gigabit licensed by the FCC wireless links, and others linked in ways I can't really discuss as they are trade secret and what sets us apart. We really are THE BEST internet provider in the area with the most diverse stable network. =)
We are now hiring for internet installers. No experience? No problem, we’ll give you paid training. If you’ve successfully pointed and locked a DirecTV or DISH Network satellite before, it’s pretty much just the same.
How much do we pay?
We pay WAYYY more than any other Fixed Point Wireless company out there. An average installer with no experience just starting out, should be able to plug 10 circuit per week once training is complete. 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. With that in mind, most average installers clear $900 to $1100 just starting out because we pay by job. We pay extremely well, because as a well trained engineer, you are in charge of your own schedule and how many jobs you complete during the week, with a minimum requirement of 10 jobs a week.
How do I apply?
Quite simple really, just CLICK HERE . Right at the top of the page there is a link to get to the online application which only takes a couple minutes to fill out. Once submitted, if we like your application we’ll call you in for an interview at our office and then 1 to 3 “audition jobs” where we determine if the job is right for you. We pay $50 cash money for each audition install. Every installer is required to have a reliable vehicle big enough to haul around ladders and other equipment/tools necessary to do the job. A full list of tools will be provided to you during the interview that you will be responsible for having on you at all times when working.
We have officially made it past the election and into the second month of the New Year. Hyper Fusion is moving fast and we have gained our stride. I know with previous posts unrest has been shown, but as all things do, they work out how they’re supposed too.
A few new ideas…
We’ve been spitballing around is our Fusion Business Network to connect our customers who are business owners with the rest of the community. Any suggestions or recommendations for this can be submitted too firstname.lastname@example.org
All ideas, suggestions, and questions are encouraged. This is a completely new platform we are wanting to get going to better help fuse our community together, so anything is helpful.
In other news…
Hyper Fusion is looking for new recruits to help install. Over 200 customers and plenty more waiting to get added on, there is plenty of work. If you or anyone you know is interested check out our website for instructions to apply: https://www.hyperfusiontech.com/jobs-careers/
Happy Valentine’s Day
Otherwise here’s a few thoughts about the history of valentines day. The history of Valentine’s day is unknown, and mostly spread by speculation. Having to do with Romans and Christians a bunch of years ago, it is mostly commercialized today. The irony in this holiday and every other one that is celebrated by the United States government and or recognized by commercialism, is that they are all about loving one another and being grateful for someone else. Whether we show it with chocolate or gift wrapped presents, a turkey dinner, or hiding/asking for candy, we should all take time to put the devices down and disconnect once in a while and be grateful for what we have here in the moment.
Lastly, let’s show some love for our Hyper Fusion staff! They’ve been busting their booty to get it done! Here’s to another great year at HFT!
Hyper Fusion Staff
As some of you or a lot of you may have realized our facebook page is gone along with out Twitter and other social networking sites. Many have been confused by this. We chose to wait until we had our business alot more put together and things going in a good positive motion, which they are now. The Co-Founders of Hyper Fusion believe there are much better avenues of subscriber acquisition and want to forge our own path moving forward. Our choice has nothing to do with the current social climates that our nation is experiencing and has been part of our long term plans for some time now. We just feel like now is the proper time to move forward in the next stage of our Company’s development.
We will no longer be making posts of any kind anywhere on any social networking site. We will not make official announcements any place but on our own website in a post just like this one. Thank you to everyone who supported our social networking profiles when they where up, but not we’re asking all our loyal followers to follow us on our own website. =)
Before the internet was invented, TV was easy. You break out those bunny ears, slap them on your TV, and away you went. No calling the cable man, no downloading an app, no trying to figure out what’s going on. TV received its first “upgrade” in 1948 when the first cable services delivered broadcast TV channels in Oregon, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania. In the 60’s, these “cable lines” started to expand into metro areas, and by the 1970’s, the very first television networks started to form. Including HBO, C-SPAN, ESPN and a few more. By the 90’s, cable was running strong with a 57% market density in subscriptions and nearly 80 networks running strong as well.
Then, in 1996, the dawn of the “cable modem” and broadband internet was introduced to the masses. This new technology was poised to take over as the primary medium through which news, entertainment, and education would be delivered to consumers. By 1998 consumers in the US had access to more than 170 networks and fiber became even more prevalent. The National cable & television association ( NCTA ) claims more than 93% of Americans had access to cable TV at that time. However, as fellow rural Texans know not a single cable company will run lines to more than 60 million people who live in these rural areas.
Then, in 2007 everything changed. A little known DVD rental company called Netflix started putting their movie catalogue online and came out with the very first streaming service. This would be the begining of what would remake the television, entertainment, movie, and music industries forever. By this time more and more rural consumers were also getting mobile phones which made it possible to consume media on the go. Something that had never happened before.
The War Begins
With media now consumable on the go, of course the US government started to get involved and this caused a huge increase in regulation. As a result, a good chunk of the media, TV, and movie world fell apart. Most may not be aware, but TV and radio FCC renewals are always processed in a staggered format. Cable companies have a license agreement with networks (like ABC, ESPN, Fox…etc)in order to create a channel line up. As streaming became more prevalent, these distributors like, Spectrum, Cox, and Netflix decided with the new streaming media for delivery, traditional transmission methods were no longer needed.
Once streaming became the primary medium of delivery for media, other companies realized they no longer needed cable TV companies to distribute their productions. Then came the introduction of Disney + and Disney pulled all of its content that it owned from Netflix. Many other companies soon followed suit. Now streaming companies had to get inventive to keep from losing lots of subscribers. The primary means of doing this it seems, went to producing original content. As a result, American’s started subscribing to multiple streaming services. Now when you add all the different streaming services at an average of $20/service for 5 different ones to ensure you see watch what you want too, the total is as much as cable was! $100 a month between streaming services and add-ons is what most people pay today, that’s more than most average cable modems. It seems, TV, movies, and music, are doomed to be in disarray for many years to come.
Isn’t it ironic?
Business Update Notice
According to the Daily TRIM and a story posted by Daniel Clifton, Burnet businesses are back to 50% occupancy due to increased hospitalizations from COVID-19. We strongly encourage all our subscribers and fellow community members to respect this as it keeps us all safe. This pandemic has really rolled over a lot of us. Hyper Fusion is right there in the trenches with you folks. We all need to help each other during times like this.
COVID-19 In 2021

COVID has taken a huge toll on communities, schools, families, and businesses. At times like these Hyper Fusion really encourages everyone to understand the times we’re in and really truly help your neighbor. Why, because its the right thing to do. After all, its literally in the name of our country “United” States. So Hyper Fusion is encouraging all our subscribers and community members to remain united together to battle this pandemic. Everyone should do their part to ensure that we can wipe it out. Not only that, but learn from all the mishaps as we move forward to prevent such wide spread devastation in the future.
