The Ultra Hig-Speed Task Force recommendations are still get media attention, which is great. I think a goal for those of us who support broabdand is to keep it and the Task Force recommendations in the news as long as possible – and to help it bubble up again during the legislative seesion.
Here are some of the places I’ve seen it crop up in the last week:
Almanac North (Duluth, TV) – Task Force Chair, Rick King, Senator Yvonne Prettner Solon and Bill Coleman from Community Technology Advisors (consultatnt to the Blandin Foudnation) talk about the recommednation on their television show.
Broadband Task Force report mixes wants, needs (St Cloud Times) – describes the Task Force speed goal as lofty, and compares it to “the automotive equivalent of providing every resident with a Cadillac”
Found another ripple:

They highlight broadband as a necessity in Minnesota and talk about communities who are making strides to bring broadband to their areas.
