Connecting Communities to Compete
The Broadband & E-Commerce Education Center engages, educates, and trains to help Wisconsin compete globally.
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, defining policies and regulations around broadband connectivity, or working with businesses to enhance their online presence, our goal is increased high-speed Internet service subscribership, particularly for rural areas of Wisconsin.
Our work is done in partnership and collaboration and is an example of the Wisconsin Idea at work.
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.
