The Town of Eagle Point Board as of July 1, 2021 voted to support and committ $300,000 of Eagle Point’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to Bloomer Telephone for broadband expansion in the town . Bloomer Telephone will be seeking funding from the State and needs the support and monies in order for the State to grant funds for this project.
As reported at the town board meeting October 18, 2021 we were notified they have been awarded their grant money needed from the State for Eagle Point. Fiber optic cable has been ordered. It is the hope to start the project late spring, early summer of 2022. Start and finish date will depend on the timing of receiving the material needed for the project. Weather may also cause some delays in the project.
If you have any questions on where or if it will be installed in your area please contact Bloomer Telelphone at 715-568-4830
