Bug Tussel University

We make learning fun.

Bug Tussel University (BTU) is the educational branch of Bug Tussel Wireless LLC, an internet service provider offering high speed internet service throughout the Midwest’s rural communities. Bug Tussel University was created to provide individuals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to thrive while using technology in their everyday life.

We provide classes free of charge to rural areas taught by an experienced and educated team of industry experts. Our classes primarily cover basic technology concepts, such as how the internet works, how to use computers, how to stay safe online, smartphone tutorials, and more.

Our classes and tutorials are made possible in part through partnership (bond or grant) agreements we have with several counties throughout the state of Wisconsin. While partner counties take first priority on our calendar, we do also teach classes in non-partner counties upon request as long as we have a teacher available within reasonable driving distance and there is enough interest (we would like at least 5 or more students in attendance) in classes. For more information, please contact us by emailing us at bugtusseluniversity@btussel.com or by calling 920-940-0003.

A class for all levels

We provide classes from beginners to advanced levels of technical knowledge. Because technology is sometimes intimidating, we teach in a relaxed, fun and supportive atmosphere. For many students our classes are as much a social activity as they are informative. Click on a link below for more information or to sign up for a class.
