For about half of its residents, it is about to get a little easier to connect to the internet in Kewaunee County. The state’s Public Service Commission recently awarded Kewaunee County $960,000 to help increase its high-speed internet access with assistance from Bug Tussel Wireless in Green Bay. The grant is a major part of the $2.3 million project to build seven towers, directly affecting the townships of Carlton, Casco, Franklin, Red River, and West Kewaunee. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says this is great news for residents and visitors in the area.
There will not be much buffering involved when it comes to getting started on the broadband projects in Kewaunee County. In addition to contracts between the state and the county, Bug Tussel Wireless is going to start looking for properties to build the towers this week.
