As many of you may know a major Internet provider in Juneau County is Frontier and is severely impacting a lot of peoples lives in a negative way. COVID-19 has pushed a lot of people to do their work at home and classes have been virtual. Right now I am located a mile out of Mauston, WI and am suppose to manage with 1 GB of slow internet speed for $45 a month. They not only offer slow internet speed with a limited amount of data, they also lack basic customer service. For example within the last year and a half they have "fixed" our internet roughly 10 times and were still haven't buried our line. They have had our line strung across the yard, through the trees and over the road ILLEGALLY attached to the utility pole. This last winter a county Snow plow caught the wire and called the local fire department to cut it because they thought it was an electrical wire. The fire departments said we would be charged for the call, because Frontier is incompetent. I have seen multiple posts made about Frontiers poor service, but sadly where I am located the township claims Frontier has a no contest contract. I am hoping to get that contract canceled so a better internet provider can give people in my area better service. Many kids and adults rely on internet to do their jobs or schooling. Allowing other internet providers to service this area would be beneficial for everybody and would allow less stress for those trying to succeed at their education and careers. They're holding back the future of this new generation. We are at a loss and due to COVID-19 there are not a lot of alternatives. I believe that allowing another Company like CenturyLink would do nothing but good for my community. CenturyLink offers high quality, fast speed unlimited data for $65 a month. In my household we have 6 people, 2 of which are currently in college and have all online classes. It may seem like a silly issue but it has put stress on a lot of people that rely on good internet service. I urge you to sign this petition, what could it hurt?
