Forward Analytics to Study Broadband
The COVID-19 pandemic has put in sharp relief the need to ensure all households in Wisconsin, in rural areas as well as towns and cities, have access to adequate broadband. To this end, it is crucial to identify unserved and underserved areas in the state, and empower local service providers and local units of government to seek and receive support from the Public Service Commission (PSC) of Wisconsin and the Federal Communications Commission.
Due to the critical importance of this topic, Forward Analytics is conducting a deeper dive into broadband infrastructure, looking at the economic importance of broadband, the unserved or underserved areas of the state, and the different means of expanding broadband in Wisconsin. The analysis and findings will be published in one or more reports later this year.
