UW-Extension Issues Broadband Policies Publication

  • UW-Extension Broadband & E-Commerce Education Center
MADISON, WI — The UW-Extension Broadband & E-Commerce Education Center is excited to announce the publication of the new Broadband Policies & Regulations guide, an updated and expanded guide for Wisconsin stakeholders navigating the complex legal and regulatory environments surrounding location broadband access and adoption.

Each community faces its own challenges and brings unique strengths to community broadband-building efforts.
The policy generalizations and case studies included are offered simply as samples to assist with understanding the issues that have been considered by others. They are a starting point for local discussions.

Specific topics addressed in our document include:

  • Public-private partnerships

  • Local ordinances

  • Technology councils

  • Community engagement

  • Local government telecommunications services

  • Unique efforts to increase adoption

  • By popular demand, we’ve also greatly expanded our selection of examples from Wisconsin and other states across the U.S. These examples highlight policies and practices in places that have addressed broadband locally, such as:

  • Local government broadband resolutions

  • Tower agreements between municipalities and private internet service providers

  • Successful applications for state and federal grant funds

  • Surveys measuring broadband demand among local businesses and households
    …and many more


The guide is offered free of charge at this time.
