WISP stands for Wireless Internet Service Provider and enables wireless Internet access for businesses and consumers. This broadband service offers access within wireless hot spots within a specific coverage area. In order to connect a computer to the internet, there needs to be an ISP. However with a wireless ISP, the computer does not have to be physically connected to a network -- merely within a certain distance of the computer.
Wisp is the alias of electronic music artist Reid Dunn who hails from Niagara Falls, New York. Wisp began making music on his computer in 1999 and originally released his music for free as mp3s on Netlabels before being signed to Sublight Records.
