Broadband in Taylor County

Like many places across Wisconsin and the country, Taylor County lacks access to reliable, high-speed broadband. Local leaders in Taylor County decided to do something about it. Guided by the work of Taylor County Community Development Educator, Michelle Grimm, the county’s Broadband Committee approved spending up to $10 million over the next 20 years to build a middle mile network – a term used to refer to connecting local networks to other service providers and the larger broadband infrastructure. Extension provided information on grant programs, supplied local maps and data, and identified speakers to help the Broadband Committee how to best partner with service providers.
