Connect Superior hosts in-person open houses

People can attend sessions this week to learn more about the proposed city-owned broadband utility.


Connect Superior is hosting its first in-person open houses Thursday, June 17, at the Superior Public Library.

Masks are required when entering the building.

People can attend sessions at noon or 7 p.m. to ask questions about the initiative to create a broadband utility in the city.

Under the proposal, the city would create an open-access fiber optic network across the city that would provide subscribers faster, cheaper internet. Internet service providers would be able to compete over the municipal network to keep costs down.
