    Wisconsin Statute Annotated § 66.0422

    Wisconsin state laws allow municipalities to own and operate broadband networks, but such networks can only be paid for by subscribers of the service, not the general population.

    Municipalities are required to conduct feasibility studies and hold public hearings prior to offering service, allowing telecom incumbents ample opportunity to stall broadband projects.

    Public entities must include phantom costs in their rates and are not able to charge rates that are lower than what incumbents charge for the same service.

    The state laws also prohibit municipalities from subsidizing telecom services.
