Door County is moving forward and funding a pair of broadband pilot programs. Nsight, the parent company of Cellcom, is applying for grants through the Wisconsin Public Service Commission for multiple projects. Those include broadband service expansion on Washington Island and in the Village of Egg Harbor. Door County will contribute $5,000 for each project pending receipt of the grant money. Ryan Heise, Egg Harbor Village Administrator, says Nsight's plans meet a big need in his community.
Nsight is using the Egg Harbor and Washington Island broadband projects to determine whether similar broadband systems could be used in other Door County communities.
