Wisconsin Releases Draft Digital Equity Plan for Public Comment
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) released the draft Wisconsin Digital Equity Plan for public comment. Once approved by the PSC, the Digital Equity Plan will guide the state’s strategy to improve digital equity, ensuring all in Wisconsin have the skills, devices, and broadband service necessary to fully participate in society and the economy. After the public comment period, the PSC will review the public comments and finalize the plan during an open meeting for submission to the National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA). Upon NTIA approval, Wisconsin will be eligible for State Capacity Grant Program funding to implement the state’s Digital Equity Plan over a five-year period. The Digital Equity Plan is available here. Public comments will be accepted until October 19,
2023. To submit a public comment under Docket 5-BP-2023, please visit the PSC’s Electronic Records Filing System.
