The Door County Economic Development Corporation is taking multiple steps toward bringing broadband internet access to the county. The EDC’s Technology Council identified three areas it will address in the coming months to determine the best ways to develop wi-fi service across the county. EDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says that approach can, hopefully, speed up the process.
As far as community surveys on broadband internet needs, the Town of Liberty Grove is the only municipality to complete its survey. Town Chair Bud Kalms says that’s because people want reliable access as soon as possible.
The EDC’s Technology Council will meet again in February with updates on the different aspects now being studied for county-wide broadband service.
