Door County FiberNet

County Broadband study implementation recommendations from the Broadband Steering Committee & endorsed by the DCEDC Board of Directors.

Key Study Findings / Recommendations

    The study provides a general design model that can be replicated throughout the County and it should be utilized as the guide for implementing broadband in the County.

    We knew we had issues, but this study defines how poor our service is in the County which will help enable grant funding.

    While there are significant public resources available for broadband, it will still require local investments to accomplish the countywide vision.

    Broadband is not a luxury, it is a necessity like electricity.

    Like electricity, it will require partnership between the private and public sectors.

    Door County needs a dedicated “leader and champion” for the overall broadband strategy to be successful.

    To accomplish a federated network, we will need to work together to ensure connectivity and efficient use of funds.

    We will need to build partnerships with potential Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to be successful.

    It will take time and persistence at the local, county and state level.
