Mapping is an important step in Wisconsin's broadband planning efforts. The Wisconsin Broadband Office (WBO) works with providers, communities, the federal government and additional stakeholders to gather data and develop maps. These maps and data depict the current state of internet coverage and drive future deployment planning. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please email the mapping team at
