Baldwin Says Broadband Investment Is Needed

Senator Tammy Baldwin says telecom providers and the federal government now need to work together to get broadband access to rural Wisconsin. That funding is part of the new infrastructure bill, and Baldwin says broadband is vital to everyone’s lives now.

“That should be, in my mind, it’s like a public utility but we need to make this investment.”

It’s unclear how that rollout will happen, but Baldwin says planning is already underway on the federal side of things.
