The state has announced plans to spend nearly $29 million — including nearly $23 million in federal funds — to boost access to high-speed Internet across the state. More than 200 miles of fiber-optic cable will be used to connect to schools and libraries in more than 380 communities in all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. The installation is expected to provide the equivalent of 150 jobs over the next 18 months; when finished, more than 125,000 households will be within the market area of these sites.
