Superior City Council approves ‘Connect Superior’ build
SUPERIOR, WI. (Northern News Now) - The Superior City Council has voted to build a city-owned fiber network providing another internet option for residents.
The project is called Connect Superior and was first approved back in 2021. The goal is to provide high-speed internet to every home and business in the city.
According to Mayor Jim Paine, the fiber lines won’t compete with the private sector but instead will be a physical infrastructure that the city owns.
During Tuesday’s city council meeting the plan for the project was approved in a 7-3 vote.
There’s no word yet on the timeline of construction.
