Established by the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners
Working to Achieve Countywide Broadband Equity by 2022
UPDATE in the development of the Washtenaw County Broadband Gap filling project.
It took longer to get this project started than anyone anticipated this year, but it is now underway. To help all residents follow the progress, we have created an interactive map that can be searched for your address, or just navigate to it. Click on your parcel and it will provide information about who the internet service provider will be, an estimated completion date, and a link to the providers website. Many of the schedules are still be worked on and updated, so please don’t be alarmed if you see a date that is a few years away. All of the target dates will be updated as we get closer to your areas. Keep in mind, there are about 8,000 homes we are working on reaching, which is going to take more than 1,000 miles of fiber optic cabling. The map will be updated as new areas are activated.
In addition to these links, you can also access the map through the Washtenaw County MapWashtenaw project at MapWashtenaw | Washtenaw County, MI. Go to the layers tab and click on the “Broadband Gap Project”. Both of these map links will be updated in realtime as the project progresses.
As stated by Justin Hodge, Chair of Ways and Means Committee and Commissioner for District 5. “When making decisions as important as this, it’s important that in addition to looking at data and best practices, we also are engaging with our community to make sure this plan is tailored to meet the needs of Washtenaw County residents.”
