Like many places across Wisconsin and the country, Taylor County lacks access to reliable, high-speed broadband. Local leaders in Taylor County decided to do something about it. The Taylor County Broadband Committee approved spending up to $10 million over the next 20 years to build a middle mile network – a term used in the telecommunications industry referring to connecting local networks to other service providers and the larger broadband infrastructure.
