High Speed Internet Update
You may have noticed crews installing cable in ditchlines along the roads in the Village of Maine. The area is being prepared for fiber optic high speed internet through a company called Bug Tussel. MR Electric is the contractor who is installing the cable. According to the Bug Tussel website, the cables are buried then the fiber optics are blown in. So we have a ways to go yet, but fall of this year is looking promising.
According to Justin Schmidt, customer service representative,
"Marathon County will be completed in 30-mile sections, so the actual timeline for service going live will vary depending on your location.... we will likely begin the installation process for the first section starting this fall and then continue from there.
When crews are ready to install for a given section, we will notify everyone along that part of the route who has confirmed interest in service. If anyone would like to get on that list, they would just need to reach out and we will be able to confirm servicability and have them added."
