Proposal Would Fill High-Speed Internet Gap In Nasewaupee



Town of Nasewaupee residents who live in a 'black hole' when it comes to broadband internet service could soon be seeing the light.

Fish Creek-based NEWWIS, a high-speed wireless provider, is proposing a new tower be built at the Landfill site at 7129 Hainesville Road to cover customers who currently lack modern broadband service.

Nate Bell of NEWWIS says the 80-foot tower would augment the company's existing coverage in the town.

Bell says they'd actually like to build a tower that's 125 feet high but they're constrained by FAA regulations relating to the proximity to Door County Cherryland Airport.  

"The time to take to do that initially is going to be too much," says Bell. "We want to get the tower up there, get the people we can serve there served, and then work on dealing with the federal government after that." 

The proposed agreement calls for the town to pay for the cost of the tower, estimated to be about $6,800. If approved, Bell says the town should start seeing positive cash flow in three to six years. 

The Nasewaupee Town Board is expected to make a decision on the proposal in April.
