Dodge County Begins Broadband Feasibility Study

(Juneau) Dodge County has begun a broadband feasibility study. The goal is to bring improved broadband services to households and businesses throughout the county. The study will analyze existing broadband assets, including those offered by local telecom service providers, cable companies, and government organizations that provide communication services through schools and first responders. It will also evaluate the types of broadband services available as well as broadband use patterns and gaps in existing coverage.

The county has hired Design Nine, a firm that specializes in broadband planning, to develop recommendations and a strategic road map for better service in the region. The study is scheduled to be completed by the end of November and will serve to guide the implementation of a modern broadband network. 

County officials say a key part of the study includes a broadband survey for both businesses and residents over their current connections. Paper surveys are being sent out and surveys can also be done online. Officials say these surveys will provide detailed broadband usage and coverage data needed to complete the study.
