Roscommon County is now better connected to the rest of the world.

Michigan's Merit Network works to get communities hooked up to broadband Internet.

Right now, they're using a federal grant to build more than 2,200 miles of high-speed network infrastructure in Michigan.

Houghton Lake is now taking advantage of this new network, and hoping for a big impact.
