The city of Madison is currently working on a pair of ambitious projects to offer high-speed internet access to its residents. One is a pilot project that would establish fiber connections in four low-income neighborhoods, while the other is a study that investigates the potential for a municipal broadband system.
(WORT) — A study to investigate providing high-speed public broadband in Madison is just getting underway. Mayor Paul Soglin is a supporter of creating a public internet utility that would provide equal access to broadband for all residents and says this feasibility study is the first step to making the plan a reality.
