Nsight gets broadband grants

Nsight Telservices has been selected to receive a broadband expansion grant through the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) totaling $227,125 for fiber construction projects supporting businesses in underserved portions of Sheboygan County.

This PSC funding aims to provide Wisconsin’s families and businesses with the technology they need to prosper in today’s global economy.

A total of 45 projects were selected in the state to receive $7.68 million in grants.

In Sheboygan County, Nsight Telservices will construct 7.5 miles of fiber along County O between State 32 and County E.

The middle-mile project will pass 23 businesses and three community anchor institutions and will bring broadband to the Sheboygan Falls Town Hall.

The fiber will also connect several Cellcom towers providing fiber backhaul and the ability to upgrade wireless speeds in the network there.

The project received a $177,895 grant and Nsight will invest an additional $415,088.

“Sheboygan County has seen significant economic growth in recent years, but this growth has taken place primarily in the Highway 43 and 23 corridor,” Sheboygan County Economic Development Corp. Director Dane Checolinski said. “The Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation knows it is essential to extend such growth into rural areas of Sheboygan County.

“Having fiber along Highway O will assist in attracting new investment to the area and position Sheboygan County for positive rural economic development in the future,” he said.

Nsight hopes to conclude the Sheboygan County project in 2019.
