Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) for years has recognized the importance of infrastructure to job creation and innovation. This is more so in the fiber world-connectivity must be adequate to support our local governments, businesses and consumers emerging digital services and lifestyles. Chippewa County businesses like Bloomer Telephone and Citizens Connected have been on the forefront of investing in high speed digital services. While Chippewa Falls, has existing fiber service through local telecom companies, Chippewa County took another step in improving Lake Wissota’s Business Park’s (LWBP) Infrastructure by partnering with WIN (Wisconsin Independent Network) in extending gigabyte availability to current and future customers. Gigabit internet is a 1000 megabit per second internet connection and helps attract businesses to LWBP. In today’s data-driven marketplace, the transfer of large quantities of information at high speed is attractive to many industries such as engineering, medical, financial, market research, and high-tech manufacturing. Not only will LWBP have faster internet connections, the improved infrastructure upgrades are an excellent future-proof solution to LWBP’s and increasing appetite for bandwidth. With no copper to interrupt the data passing at the speed of light through the fiber optic cables, increasing bandwidth availability for the future, only involves upgrading the equipment at each end while leaving the fiber network virtually untouched.
