Cameron, WI – Mosaic was recently awarded two grants by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission to expand fiber broadband infrastructure along Barron County Highway SS north of Rice Lake to Tuscobia and along Barron County Highway T west of Barron. The grants are part of the first round of broadband grants appropriated in the 2019–2021 state biennial budget. The fiber deployment for gigabit internet services is part of a multi-year initiative by Mosaic to expand fiber optic infrastructure throughout Barron County.

Mosaic CEO Domenico Fornaro thanked the PSC and local municipalities for their cooperation in securing the grants.

“I would like to thank the Wisconsin Public Service Commission for the continued partnership with Mosaic to bring the fastest, most reliable internet to people when they need it the most.”

The fiber optic deployment set to begin later this spring will allow new customers in these areas to access the fastest internet services available at 1 gig per second. The mainline fiber construction will run in the two specified areas and have drops to each home that signs up for service. Any residential household or organization on the route to the network will have access to various service options, speeds and plans.

The company will provide periodic updates on progress, so residents will know when they can take advantage of the new, faster internet. For more information about all of Mosaic’s Fiber to Home initiatives, visit or call Mosaic at 715-458-5400 to request service.
