Todd County Approves Broadband Feasibility Study

The Browerville Blade (Aug 25, 2011) reports…

County Administrator Nathan Burkett received approval to accept $40,000 in grant funds from the Blandin Foundation. The money will be used to cover part of a feasibility study to determine if Todd County can support a broadband interest service. Burkett said the feasibility study will start immediately. The study, conducted by U-reka, will determine such things as the cost of a broadband internet network and level of interest among Todd County residents. Burkett said the study will be done in three to four months.

John Schultz from U-reka Broadband adds…

We are excited to see the continued interest of Telephone Companies and Cooperatives in partnering with the public sector to deliver next generation broadband to rural Minnesota.
