Towns making headway on broadband

You will see lots of work being done in Door County in the near future addressing your fiber connection. Washington Island may be the furthest along, as they began the first of five phases of its fiber network installation earlier this year. The Washington Island Cooperative and Sturgeon Bay-based Quantum Technologies are teaming up to connect every home and business to the high-speed internet line by 2027. On Wednesday, the Town of Liberty Grove followed the lead of Baileys Harbor in signing a town-wide fiber deal with nSight with an estimated cost of $100,000 per mile. Town chairperson John Lowry is happy that after years of talking, there is finally action to address their area's broadband woes.

The Town of Jacksonport chose Frontier Communications to be its Internet Service Provider, and it will ask the electors whether it should finance up to $1.75 million for the project. The electors' meeting will take place on October 18th at 7 p.m. The towns of Nasewaupee and Clay Banks have chosen Bertram Communications to provide the internet in their communities.
