Five towers in the town of Liberty Grove by the end of 2018 is the goal to improve the community’s broadband Internet access. The town is working with Door County Broadband to earn a Wisconsin Public Service grant to build the additional towers to reach more parts of the area, currently served by only two towers. Liberty Grove chairperson John Lowry says a study done by UW-Whitewater showing the impact of a better Internet connection is a major driver.
Earlier this year, the town board unanimously passed an ordinance limiting the obstacles standing in the way of broadband companies from expanding service in Liberty Grove.
