Wisconsin Broadband Office


The mission of the Wisconsin Broadband Office (WBO) is to make high performance broadband more accessible, resilient, competitive and affordable in Wisconsin. Since 2009, the WBO has been collecting and mapping broadband coverage information for improved planning purposes. As part of the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, the WBO serves as the leader and coordinator of broadband goals, data and strategies across the state. Our vision is that all Wisconsinites have the information technology capacity needed to fully participate in society. ​
