Gearing up for Round 2 in Red Wing?

The Red Wing Republican Eagle just reported that Hiawatha Broadband Communications learned Monday it didn’t receive stimulus dollars it hoped would help pay for a high-speed fiber optic network in Minnesota spanning from Lake City to Red Wing to Cannon Falls and the surrounding townships.

The good news is that they received notice in time to try again for Round Two funding. The bad news is that they weren’t given any feedback on their proposal. It must be frustrating – and unfortunately more people will be getting the same news in the next week.
