Frequently Asked Questions

What is Airwaive?

Airwaive is a marketplace connecting wireless operators with host properties and services to build and manage networks.

How much does it cost to use Airwaive?

Airwaive is free to use by operators who build and manage networks utilizing Airwaive hosts.

There is an option for a premium service for operators that only utilize Airwaive’s planning features, as explained here.

How are Site Planner and Manager different?

Site Planner is used by operators to plan a network. This can be helpful when an ISP is just starting, applying for funding, or is not ready to engage with host properties yet.
