Welcome to the Village of Newberry, MI
Embracing Progress and Improvements

Broadband is Coming to Town
By Gina Harman

One of the most anticipated improvements that can help our entire community in so many incredible ways is the oncoming broadband that will soon be operating throughout the region.  This has been possible through the amazing results of the Rising Tides committee.  This program is a pilot program endorsed and implemented by Governor Rick Snyder.  Newberry is the only community selected in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and one of ten for the entire state.  This program has focused their energies on Newberry, MI and our surrounding region. The efforts of many talented people both from the State and local Village team members are making great strides and have already made many successful improvements.

Progress is surely knocking and with the help of Project Rising Tide, many doors are sure to open.  We are happy to announce that high speed broadband will be available to our region in the very near future. First and foremost our local residents and business will have the opportunity to move along the information highway as efficiently as people and businesses do in a large metropolitan city.  We as a community will be able to keep up with the times.  Also tourism will enjoy coming to Newberry and being able to log on, find great internet speeds and look at us as a modern progressive community.
