The state is going to make you wait for help to get faster internet speeds depending on where you live in Door County.
The Town of Baileys Harbor was the only municipality in Door County to have its broadband grant request approved, even after the state added an additional $25 million to the pool. The project will utilize fiber for 73 businesses and 1,445 homes in the town according to the Wisconsin Broadband Office. The grant was for $1.89 million in matching funds as Baileys Harbor works with NSight to make the project a reality.
A different Northern Door County project proposed by Frontier Communications asked for $4.7 million and Spectrum requested $6.8 million in grant funding but both applications were denied.
Kewaunee County was much luckier as both of their projects were approved. Bug Tussel Wireless requested $1.3 million in grant funds for the next phase of its project with Kewaunee County, while the Village of Casco asked for $265,000 for its partnership with NSight.
