Connecting Strategies

Our members trust our association to deliver and sustain a robust, cost-effective network.

“WiscNet is as concerned with people as with technology. Don’t underestimate the importance of this concern. Humans give our networks their shape and purpose. When it comes to serving PK-12 institutions, WiscNet’s concern translates into student learning and access to information. It’s not just part of their motto, it’s how they do business.”

“As Wisconsin competes in the global economy we need to make absolutely certain that our school and libraries have (high-speed, affordable) access, especially in rural areas. WiscNet now provides this access, and much more, at very affordable costs.”

The collaborative/cooperative concept associated with WiscNet and its partners/members has been win/win, kept broadband Internet in member schools cost-effective, and, certainly, coincides with the “Wisconsin Idea.”
