State seeks public input on internet access in Wisconsin

0

Wisconsin ranks 49th in the nation for internet connectivity, and the state of Wisconsin is hoping to get a better connection to more residents and businesses.

The Wisconsin State Broadband Office announced a survey that allows residents and businesses to voice their need for improved internet access or service.

This is especially relevant to the rural areas in the state, many of which are still using dial-up modem internet service.

Lake Country Now reports:

The goal of the survey is to help state planners and policy makers better understand the need for improved internet access in Wisconsin. The survey will remain open through Nov. 23.

Village of Mukwonago Police Department Chief Kevin Schmidt received an email asking for help in getting the message out to residents and businesses in the Mukwonago area. Schmidt said it is a short survey (11 questions for residents and 12 questions for businesses) and should only take about up to 10 minutes to complete.
