WLANmall, Cambium Networks and Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) are celebrating the brave tower technicians with a social media and You Tube program. The “I GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A WISP” campaign will highlight WISPs and tower technicians as they are on top of or ascending towers and installing equipment all over the United States.

“We’ve been out in the field with our customers and know that these folks are animals. They climb towers all over the U.S. in some pretty amazing and picturesque locations,” said Ronen Isaac, vice president of WLANmall. “Social media, combined with our custom-illustrated t-shirts will allow them to show off just how fearless they are.”

Participation for technicians and WISPS is easy:
• Sign up for your FREE T-Shirt at http://igwit.tumblr.com/
• Wear the “I Got What it Takes” T-shirt next time on the next tower climb.
• Take a “Selfie” to show the climb, location and the climber.
• Send the photo to igotwhatittakes@wlanmall.com

Sponsors of the campaign will promote the photos on the “I GOT WHAT IT TAKES” web site, Facebook, create videos for a YouTube channel and promote on their own social media channels. The campaign will continue throughout the year.

"We are appreciative to co-sponsors WLANMall and Cambium Networks for featuring the fine men and women, who work in dangerous environments to bring fixed wireless broadband to consumers around the world. Just be sure to climb with a partner, be certified and use the appropriate safety gear! No life is worth losing," stated Rick Harnish, executive director of WISPA.
