We work to support communities to accelerate broadband access, increase adoption, improve digital literacy, and reduce digital inequities.

Access to broadband is an increasingly important issue for economic well-being. Broadband is linked to better business performance, farm profits, and enhanced opportunities for entrepreneurship. It is also linked to higher home values, higher educational outcomes at both the grade school and high school levels, improvement in health outcomes, and leads to higher worker productivity. Despite these benefits, access to high-quality broadband is limited in many communities throughout Wisconsin.
