Participating Providers

Download the current list of Internet Service Providers who are actively participating in the LinkWISCONSIN broadband mapping efforts.

Participating providers' advertised upload and download speeds, types of technology, coverage area and link to company website are included in the State Broadband Map (accessible at top of page) and the National Broadband Map.



Mapping Background

Wisconsin is engaged in a project to map the availability of broadband connections throughout the State and to develop investment plans for enhanced broadband deployment and use.

LinkWISCONSIN's Interactive Broadband Map has been developed as a part of this effort.

Current Version

This version of the maps, updated in April 2014, is based on coverage information that was accurate as of December 31, 2013. The tenth and final data collection round, comprising coverage data accurate as of June 30, 2014, took place from July-August 2014, and will be submitted to NTIA for inclusion in the National Broadband Map (NBM) by the Oct. 1 deadline.

The updated map contains all the information and functionality we have collected and developed to date. Our efforts, however, are ongoing. We are seeking feedback from users and will incorporate your suggestions, when possible, into the map.

The current NBM will be updated with the latest-submitted data in the coming weeks.


Understanding the Maps

You may find it beneficial to read a more detailed overview of the maps, read a few tips about the map's navigation tools and functionality or review a few Frequently asked Questions (FAQ) about the mapping project. These helpful resources are also available through links inside the interactive mapping tool.

Subsequent Updates

Data is requested from providers every six months, and the maps are updated after the data is normalized and verified. The tenth and final collection of data for Wisconsin's interactive maps as they relate to the State Broadband Initiative took place in summer 2014, and will be submitted to NTIA for inclusion in the national broadband map by the October 1 deadline.

Mobile Broadband App

We need your help!

In an effort to ensure the most accurate measurement and mapping of state mobile broadband networks, LinkWISCONSIN has partnered with Mobile Pulse to provide an app that will allow us to collect and analyze mobile broadband performance across Wisconsin.

This data, which validates the speed and connection capabilities of mobile broadband vendors, will give state planners much needed insight into a wide range of operational issues, including how mobile applications will perform in the field.

SCO and DOA Team for Enhanced Broadband Mapping Project

The Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office (SCO) and the Department of Administration Division of Intergovernmental Relations (DOA) are working to enhance LinkWISCONSIN’s broadband mapping efforts. They will be working with Wisconsin’s county and municipal governments to provide a statewide address and parcel layer. These large scale mapping layers will provide for more accurate assessment of the broadband map.

Currently the SCO and DOA are preparing to contact county and local governments to obtain these data. Visit the Wisconsin Enhanced Broadband Mapping Project to learn more about the combined SCO/DOA effort to enhance LinkWISCONSIN’s broadband mapping.
