Clifton Township, Pierce County, WI
High Speed Internet Expansion Project
We received the following progress report from NorthfieldWifi:
"I wanted to give an update as to where NorthfiedWiFi stands today. On Thursday [Dec 14, 2018], we finished our River Falls build-out. We are on the Gulf View Water Tower, which sits up on the hill by the golf course.
From this location, we are able to service some parts of Clifton Township! So that is good news. It's been a long process, but we still have some work to do in order to get full approval from Pierce County for us to erect our Clifton Township 100ft tower. We have been given full approval from Clifton Township. However, there are some approvals we need from Pierce County, one being a height exemption. Pierce County votes on the height exemption at their December 19th meeting. We will be attending, but I am told all should go pretty smoothly.
We have made great strides this year in trying to fill the coverage gaps in High Speed Broadband in the area. But we are not done. I personally did some site survey's on Friday to determine if some families in the River Falls, Clifton Township and Prescott areas can get service. While a vast majority of those survey's came back as a "Yes, you can get High Speed Broadband", some of them came back "no, we can't service you right now". I know those families and individuals who can't get service right now are disappointed, please know we will continue to work on expanding our network so that tomorrow that answer will be "yes, you can get high speed broadband".
Some people have been asking "what can we do to help"? Honestly at the end of the day the best thing anyone can do is contact our office if you are interested in service. We might not be able to get you service right now, but at least that puts you on our map so we can make an educated decision on where to expand to next. If you are on this email string, then we most likely already have your information. Over the next few weeks we will be in the area doing site surveys to determine current serviceability. Our office will reach out to you before we just stop by in the event there are questions.
Below is a progress map of our current tower locations in WI area."
Anyone with questions or service inquiries should contact the Northfield Wifi via email or phone.
