Private-public partnership bringing faster internet speeds to small towns

Fiber optic networks tailored to rural areas like Door and Kewaunee counties are growing and bringing high-speed internet through private-public partnerships.  The Village of Weston, near Wausau, is the latest Wisconsin community to partner with phone, TV and internet company TDS.   They'll break ground in spring on a fiber optic network that will provide up to 1-gigabit internet speeds, TV and voice services.  TDS National Communications Manager DeAnne Boegli says partnering with rural communities makes it feasible to bring in high-speed internet.



The Weston fiber optic network project will cost between $8-10 million.  When finished in the fall, the village's 4400 residents and 550 businesses will have full access to high-speed internet.
