Broadband grant awards delayed

Efforts to expand internet broadband service in Door and Kewaunee counties are being delayed.  The state Public Service Commission was expected to announce grant awards to Wisconsin communities by February 15th.  That's now been delayed.  Tom Strong, Business Development Specialist with the Door County Economic Development Corporation, says a high number of applications require more time for consideration.  But that won't delay work currently underway on broadband systems in Door County.



The PSC is awarding $24-million in broadband grants to communities statewide.  That's part of a $160-million award from the Federal Communications Commission in 2019.
