Baileys Harbor Community Association Presents Community Broadband Workshop Series

The Baileys Harbor Community Association (BHCA) is conducting a new series of broadband workshops and you are invited to attend any or all. As you may be aware, Bertram Communications LLC, is installing a high-speed broadband within the Town of Baileys Harbor. Our goal is to help residents and businesses learn about how they can make use of the new high speed broadband network. 

Please visit https://gobertram.com/baileys-harbor-sign-up-landing-page/ for all questions regarding Bertram installation, services, and Right of Entry Agreements. You can sign up online at this website as well.

What equipment do I need? What do I get from Bertram for the standard installation? Who can help me with more work inside if I need it? What type of router do I need? What models are best for me?

(IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WORKSHOP #2 RECORDING:  The audio did not begin working until the 12:45 minute mark.  The entire workshop was recorded because we did not start until we fixed the audio.  Also, the internet connection dropped a few times so the session may appear “choppy” at a few moments.  But, everything was recorded that was discussed.)

Workshop 3Online Resources and Staying Safe While Using Them 

What online services are available including telehealth, banking, and library resources? Where do I find them? What practices can I follow to stay safe and avoid being vulnerable to bad actors? Are there tools I can use to help me with this? 

Date: Thursday, June 20 from 10 to 11 am 

Location: The Ridges Sanctuary, 8166 WI Hwy 57, Baileys Harbor
