Tecumseh Rural Broadband Advisory Committee

The Town of Tecumseh formed a Rural Broadband Advisory Committee and the inaugural meeting was held on July 14, 2021.  For "Broadband Connectivity" the minimum accepted standard for transmission speeds is 50/10 (50 megabits per second download and 10 megabits per second upload)  There are areas in the urban sections of the Town that meet or exceed these speeds with multiple ISP (Internet Service Provider) options compared to minimal or no reliable options in the rural areas.

The need for broadband connectivity has been increasing in the last 20 years and became more important than ever in 2020 for such things as education, teleworkers, access to e-health services and commerce.
