Guest Column: Expanded Broadband Creates Opportunity in Wisconsin
Posted Oct 15 2010 4:01pm
Last month Wisconsin received nearly $30 million in federal grants to build more than 600 miles of fiber optic cable, extending advanced broadband to Platteville, Wausau, Superior and the Chippewa Valley region. These funds expand connections for public institutions including universities, technical colleges, schools, hospitals and public agencies. An additional $2.4 million will fund public access computer centers along with education and outreach within the four communities and the Menomonee Nation.
