Broadband Tower at Recycling Center & Town Resident Pricing

The 300-foot tower installed next to the Recycling Center is part of a county-wide network of 19 towers constructed by Bug Tussel, a provider of wireless broadband internet service. The tower will also carry cellular phone service from AT&T and a dedicated public safety system called FirstNet available to Brooklyn Fire & EMS responders. The Green County Sheriff is also expected to use the tower in the future. More cellular providers may be added as well.

BugTussel pays rent to the town of Brooklyn for use of the land. The payments (initially $3,600 per year) are being deposited in the town’s general fund and benefit all town residents by offsetting property taxes.

The tower lights are required by the Federal Aviation Administration.

BugTussel offers internet choices through eight plans at various speeds and prices.  As negotiated, BugTussel will offer Town of Brooklyn residents a 50% discount on the top tier of their internet speed packages.

Town residents will be billed $50 per month for 25 mbps down load and 5 mbps upload. Taxes and equipment charges also apply. This pricing is good for as long as the resident holds the service. When you call to setup service, tell them you are a resident of the Town of Brooklyn and qualify for the discount. If they cannot connect you for the 25 mbps plan, they’ll honor the rate at the next available speed of 12 mbps, 8 mbps, or 4 mbps.

The technology on the tower will require that you are able to see it from somewhere on your property. The company website is bugtusselwireless.com.

Contact Bug Tussel’s local independent sales rep to set up service: Matt Doyle: (608) 330-3414

For cellular phone service, contact AT&T’s Baraboo store at (608) 581-8350 for an on-site appointment.
