Connecting Communities to Compete
Our mission is to assist local stakeholders in implementing strategies to attract broadband investments.
We do this by providing educational resources and training. Whether this means working
with county and community leaders to find funding opportunities, helping define policies and regulations around broadband connectivity (ACCESS to internet), helping people understand and use the benefits of technology (ADOPTION of internet) or working with businesses to enhance their online presence (UTILIZATION of internet), our goal is increased high-speed Internet service subscribership, particularly for rural areas of Wisconsin, because we know that Wisconsin wins when everyone’s online.
Our work is done in partnership and collaboration statewide.
The Broadband & E-Commerce Education Center was developed by the University Wisconsin Extension to build off two federal grants that develop broadband capacity for Wisconsin communities. Read more on the two BCCB grants here.
