Door County looks for stories on internet data caps

If you have ever wished you had more data on your internet plan, Door County wants you to tell the Federal Communications Commission more about the experience. The FCC established the Data Caps Experience Form so Americans can share their experiences and challenges with their fixed or wireless broadband plans. The hope is the FCC can learn how data caps impact access to broadband for all individuals. With a lack of internet options available, data caps have a big impact on Door County residents, which often ends up costing them more money or severely curtailing their usage. Door County Broadband Coordinator Jessica Hatch says filling out the form could strengthen their case to get more funding for future broadband projects.

Hatch says you can either fill out the form online or via a paper application. Either way, she offers her assistance to help you fill it out.

 

There is proof that “badgering” the FCC can help the state get crucial broadband access funds. U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin announced on Monday that the state will be receiving over $1 billion in federal funds through the Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) program to connect more Wisconsinites to high-speed internet. The effort to “Badger the FCC” came after serious questions were posed after the FCC released a National Broadband Access map last year.
