Last weekend, Senator Amy Klobuchar visited Lac qui Parle County in Western Minnesota. She wanted to learn more about the ARRA-funded adoption and deployment projects happening in the area. Here’s a video of her visit:
LqP has received funding from the Upper Minnesota Valley RDC through the Minnesota Intelligent Rural Communities (MIRC) initiative to support the Computer Commuter – a mobile computer lab in a bus. It visits towns in the County, like a bookmobile, so that residents can experience broadband with the help of the Computer Commuter director, Mary Quick.
It’s a great one-two punch in developing a demand immediately before offering a supply of broadband.
