Minnesota has adopted a broadband mandate that will go into effect in 2015 which would will require a minimum of 10 MB download and 5 MB upload speed to be accessible to all citizens of Minnesota. How will we make this happen in Redwood County?

Mark Erickson—Renville/Sibley Fiber, and Pam Lehmann—Lac qui Parle County Broadband will share with us what they have been working on in their counties to address this new infrastructure demand. They will be sharing and educating us on what the future of broadband will mean to us for business development, recruitment, labor force retention and attraction, and life-long learning opportunities for all ages.
