July 1, 2022, Cable, WI: Norvado’s announcement of a $9.8 million project is exciting news for businesses and residents of the area between Winter and Clam Lake. This project, scheduled for completion in 2024, will provide Gigabit services to over 1,500 locations in the area. With minimum speeds of 300/300 Mbps, the residents and businesses of this construction area will be able to take advantage of one of the best internet values in the country. This type of world-class internet enables work and school from home, high-tech home automation, and streaming television services.
