Broadband holding you back? Not in Norvado Country - We're Telecommuter Optimized!
12:54PM February 15, 2019
Working 9 to 5 is becoming something of the past...sorry Dolly. More and more people are adopting the telecommuter approach as they look to balance their career and dream lifestyle. Telecommuting has its perks (who wouldn't want to work in their PJ's all day?), but for some it simply isn't an option due to a lack of broadband capabilities at their home. Fortunately, for those in Norvado Country, they can have it all!
Since 2009, we've been converting our service area from outdated, copper facilities to state-of-the-art Fiber Optic. With almost 100% of our area converted, people can now receive Internet speeds of 1 Gigabit per second, which is faster than in most metropolitan areas. The north woods is becoming a Telecommuter's dream, and Wisconsin lawmakers have taken notice.
On April 16, 2018 Gov. Scott Walker signed into law a bill that allows Wisconsin communities to be dedicated as Telecommuter Forward! Communities, meaning they have the network and amenities to support Telecommuters' needs. Bayfield County was the first Telecommuter Forward! Community in the nation, and our Fiber Optic infrastructure was instrumental in its certification. This bill help attract remote workers to our rural communities, as well as help our youth realize the career potentials in their home towns, both of which will have significant economical impacts.
