Senator Klobuchar visits LqP

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.

LqP has also received funding for FTTH through Farmers Mutual. They will be starting construction soon on the network.

It’s a great one-two punch in developing a demand immediately before offering a supply of broadband.
