  3. 3. It’s not about getting “The Broadband” It’s about getting more of the broadband… and that job will never be over.
  4. 4. Speed Matters… Dial-up+ (56 Kbps):  1 day, 10 hrs, 44 min T1/DSL (1.54 Mbps):  1 Hour, 15 min Cable (10 Mbps ):  11 min, 44 sec Fiber (1 Gbps):  7 sec HighSpeedBroadbandBootCampNovember13-142013

  6. 6. Why Does Any of this matter? Former FCC Chairman Genachowski "Winning The Global Bandwidth Race" “We are in a global bandwidth race. A nation’s future economic security is tied to frictionless and speedy access to information” http://www.fcc.gov/document/chairman-genachowski-winning- global-bandwidth-race
  7. 7. Average Connection Speed: Akamai http://www.akamai.com/stateoftheinternet/ WI = 8.2 Mbps
  8. 8. Broadband Connectivity (>4 Mbps) WI = 67%
  9. 9. High Broadband (>10 Mbps) WI = 17%

  14. 14. • Minnesota business establishments that use broadband report median annual revenues that are approximately $200,000 higher than businesses that do not use broadband. • Nearly 60% of small businesses report that broadband availability is an essential factor in making a decision on their location.

  15. 15. Estimated Annual Cost of Digital Exclusion (-) $55 Billion U.S. (-) $1 Billion Wisconsin www.econsult.com/articles/030810_costofexclusion.pdf
  16. 16. A little fuzzy math  $55.2 billion/316,128,839 = $175 per citizen  $175 x 5,742,713 (WI Pop)= > $1 billion  $175 x 62,597 (Sauk Pop) = ~$11 million a year in cost savings

  23. 23. Cooperatives Cooperatives have been changing the face of doing business for over 150 years. That's because when you join a cooperative, you're choosing a business that is organized, owned and controlled by the very people who use it. And those people can actually help shape and grow their cooperative to meet the changing needs of members. Over 100 million people are members of more than 48,000 cooperatives in the United States today. They've organized themselves to provide goods and services in nearly every sector of our economy. But that isn't all. Cooperatives are partners in our community, investing in economic development and human involvement that will keep our hometowns and rural areas alive and well in years ahead. Working together, cooperative members are reaching goals they never could have attained on their own. Source: Norvado, http://www.norvado.com/norvado-about-what-is-a- cooperative.php

  35. 35. Who Are We Missing?  ~ 560,000 people in Wisconsin live in areas where there is no wireline broadband service from a provider advertising the option of purchasing a broadband service that delivers at least 4 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload speed  Just over 50% live in counties that are classified as high or very high unmet demand based on the Wisconsin broadband demand survey.

  39. 39. Should We Really Be Looking at the Cost of Upgrading Copper Infrastructure? “The Company’s copper plant needs to be replaced. There is broadband provided in the Company’s rural Service area today, but the plant in the rural areas is starting to deteriorate. It was built many years ago with the help of the RUS loan program and USF support. With fewer people taking landlines and no federal support there is no economic justification to rebuild these locations. The funding that the Company is seeking will ensure these customers are not left behind in the IP transition”

  60. 60. For purposes of this discussion there are two defining applications: • Out of state/region businesses considering site options • Communities collecting data and telling their story…which is today’s focus. “The emerging broadband market is at times poorly informed…from both the supply and the demand side of the conversation. Businesses struggle to understand and articulate their requirements and providers are challenged to identify specific demand as it changes so quickly.” 62 Understanding Demand with the BAT

  70. 70. Words of Wisdom… In 1999, Wisconsin’s Comprehensive Planning Law (§66.1001 Wisconsin Statutes) required that every municipality in the state that wished to have a say in land use decisions approve and adopt a comprehensive plan prior to January 1, 2010. That law also requires an update to the plan every ten years at a minimum. Utilities & Community Facilities Section Economic Development Section
