Lakeland Communications, Town of Osceola try again for broadband expansion grant
10 Mar 2022
Lakeland Communications and the Town of Osceola are trying again for a grant to help bring broadband internet service to residents.
In December Lakeland Communications learned that the grant they had submitted in the fall was not awarded.
“The why is a bit higher but it followed the federal guidelines which gave higher grading to co-op and nonprofits. They had awarded 85% of the grant to business in these credentials,” explained Robert Zuzek, Director of Business Development at Lakeland Communications.
