An initiative by technology advocacy group Wired Wisconsin to track technology investment in Wisconsin has released its first estimate. From July through September of this year, estimated private investment in broadband infrastructure totals more than $12 million and has created 604 jobs.
The investment comes after the passage of the Wisconsin’s Telecom Modernization Act earlier this year, which allowed telecom companies to focus their resources on implementing broadband and wireless technologies instead of wired landlines.
Wired Wisconsin plans to continue tracking investment and job creation in the telecom industry on a quarterly basis. We are excited to see future reports on wireless and broadband investment in Wisconsin as these technologies become
crucial to economic and business development. What do you think?
