Efforts to implement the Wireless Oakland strategy have resulted in a partnership with Michigan based telecommunications company, Air Advantage who was awarded $65 million in grants and loans from the Broadband Initiatives Program. Per Federal Guidelines, the funding can only be used to provide broadband service to rural communities in the Thumb and portions of Southeast Michigan. Their proposed fee-based service area includes portions of northern and western Oakland County.
