The City has implemented a large high speed fiber optic network that is currently serving anchor institutions including the City, County, Madison Public Schools, Madison College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Hospitals, Community Centers, Libraries, other municipalities and a number of commercial businesses. Our plan is to leverage this infrastructure to provide broadband service to residents as well. Madison is currently moving ahead on a pilot project to provide internet service to low income neighborhoods. In addition, we are initiating a study to determine the feasibility of creating an internet co-op utility to provide internet services to city residents.
