JUNEAU — Like many others across the state, Dodge County is waiting to hear whether its grant application to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) has been successful, and whether it can pursue a plan to bring broadband coverage throughout the area.
“The first question is always, ‘What is broadband?’” said Dodge County Planning & Economic Development Administrator Nate Olson. “The answer is high speed internet.”
In an introduction to a recently completed survey Olson wrote, “In today’s world there are a variety of everyday functions that rely on high speed internet service. Obtaining reliable service is no longer a want, but a need. It is the infrastructure of the future.”
