Steve Schneider, son of a Manitowoc County dairy farmer and a Cellcom Executive for ten years, developed Bug Tussel Wireless in 2003. Steve was distressed by the lack of attention that rural areas received from cellular providers. He developed the vision and mission to align with the desire to provide service in rural markets with as little as 2 to 5 households per square mile. This economic model was to provide internet service in rural areas where larger carriers chose not to provide service or could not provide service from an economic or company objective standpoint.

A subsidiary of Hilbert Communications, at Bug Tussel we are bringing the best of Internet technology to rural Wisconsin. With Steve Schneider at the helm, we continue to successfully pursue this passion with our high-speed internet service offered throughout Wisconsin’s rural communities. Bug Tussel should be your choice if you are looking for internet service that is absolutely world class, backed by reliable support and service.

Our passion for serving rural communities in Wisconsin

Today there are many providers expanding coverage to rural areas to take advantage of special subsidies. But, at Bug Tussel, our rural communities have always been our focus. Our foray into Wisconsin’s rural areas was driven by our keen enthusiasm to serve the folks here and this has not changed. We started out bringing high speed internet to areas where others can’t or won’t and our mission remains the same.
