SANTA CLARA, CA – FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, Sail Internet CEO Kevin Fisher and Mimosa founders Brian Hinman and Jamie Fink met yesterday at Mimosa Headquarters in Santa Clara, CA for an open discussion about the future of broadband and how fixed wireless is poised to disrupt the status quo. 

Mimosa, the leader in cloud-managed, fiber-fast wireless solutions, hosted the event to boost awareness of how their innovative new products are making the fixed wireless revolution possible.

Sail Internet, a Bay Area ISP with a big vision, is creating a competitive and affordable alternative to cable and DSL in dense suburban areas by delivering high-speed internet access using fixed wireless technology.

“It was an honor to share a stage with FCC Commissioner Clyburn during her visit to the Bay Area. I was able to articulate Sail’s vision for revolutionizing consumer internet access in the U.S., and explore the potential for fixed wireless to address the digital divide — providing cost-effective internet access for those left behind by the big incumbent providers,” said Kevin Fisher, CEO of Sail Internet.

FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn can take away from her visit that there’s an internet access revolution happening in Silicon Valley. Fixed wireless technology is bringing savings, speed, competition and greater accessibility to the internet access market.
