Broadband Investment Project

The Region 5 Broadband Planning Team

In fall 2010, the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) appointed 18 community leaders from the area to the Broadband Planning Team representing Northeast Wisconsin (Brown, Door, Florence, Green Lake, Waushara, Fond du Lac, Oconto, Menominee, Waupaca, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marinette, Shawano, Marquette, Outagamie, Calumet, Sheboygan and Winnebago Counties).

The Team members met regularly in 2010 to create an action plan to address gaps in broadband availability and improve the adoption of available broadband services. After considerable preliminary work and numerous meetings, the Team has drafted a preliminary plan.  A Summary of the Draft Plan for Northeast Wisconsin is available, as is the complete draft plan.
