SonicNet Receives Grant to Expand Service to Town of Plum Lake

We are happy to announce that we have been awarded a Wisconsin PSC Broadband Expansion Grant to build new towers in order to provide service in the Town of Plum Lake in Vilas County.

Even though there is still snow on the ground, plans are underway to build up to four new towers to provide coverage to most of the lakefront properties on Star Lake, Plum Lake, and some of the smaller lakes within the Town's boundaries. 

We are in the process of securing sites suitable for these towers. 

We encourage anyone with property in the Town of Plum Lake that is close to any of the lakes or groups of homes to contact us for a site evaluation.  Your neighbors will love you!

This area of Vilas County has been pretty much left out of recent telephone company wireline upgrades to their internet services, and we hear from residents that they need better options.  The PSC agreed, and this is an opportunity to provide fast, reliable internet connections for both year-round and summer residents in this beautiful part of the North Woods. 

Live in the Town of Plum Lake?  We'd love to hear from you.  Let us know you want service.  We look forward to helping you get the connection you need.

Give us a call at 888-631-9666 or send us an email at  We're located in downtown Eagle River, and we are part of the greater North Woods community.

Happy (Almost) Spring!

If you're currently in the North Woods, you already know that it doesn't look anything at all like spring outside.  With 6-10 inches of new snow a couple of days ago, and a forecast for several more inches within 24 hours, it feels more like January than April. 

But such is the weather in Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, and those of us who have been around a while know that almost anything goes in April.

Thankfully, we at SonicNet have been planning all winter for our spring work, and we look forward to announcing some news just about the time our Snowbirds start coming back. 

In the meantime, if you're a current SonicNet customer and want faster speeds, give us a ring at 888-631-9666, ext. 0, to find out what's available.  We made a lot of network upgrades last year, and we want to make sure you know about that. 

If you're not in a SonicNet-covered area, let us know if you would like to be covered.  Did the DSL upgrade at your home in the past few months disappoint?  Let us know!  You are our best source of information when it comes to knowing where our services are most needed. 

We compete very well with cable, fiber and DSL in many areas, so please give us a call to see what may be available for your family or business in 2018.  We look forward to hearing from you!
