MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State auditors want to know where the 26 UW campuses will get their Internet service starting next summer.

All UW schools are currently on Wisc-Net – a non-profit group that provides high-speed Web service to the university, public libraries, and most K-to-12 school districts throughout the state.

Wisc-Net gets most of its funding from its tax-funded users – and GOP lawmakers cried foul, saying the government shouldn’t compete with the private sector.

So they passed a law ordering UW schools to cut off their Wisc-Net service and get it elsewhere.

The Legislative Audit Bureau has asked UW officials to explain how it will obtain Internet service – and how it will be paid for.
