Door County Broadband announced earlier this week it will acquire Kewaunee County-based Wiz Tech as it looks to expand its services to cover the entire peninsula. Owned by Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy, Wiz Tech was part of a vision of John Pagel and Jason Guinn to bring the Internet to rural Kewaunee County. With new FCC regulations coming and Door County Broadband earning grant money for expansion in Kewaunee County, JJ Pagel from Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy says it was going to be hard to be able to provide the type of service its customers needed.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but Pagel says Door County Broadband will begin rebuilding towers and upgrading people’s Internet services.
