MERRILL - Lincoln County and workers at UW Extension Lincoln County will start researching what areas in the county need and want faster internet speeds.
Small businesses fall behind when they can't get the internet speed and access they need. It's a broadband problem for many parts of the rural Northwoods.
UW Extension Lincoln County's Art Lersch doesn't know how, where, or what improvements would look like for sure. However, he does know some people and businesses in rural areas could use some faster internet speeds.
