Next Minnesota Broadband Task Force is September 10

The next Minnesota Broadband Task Force meeting is Thursday September 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at DEED’s offices (James J. Hill Conference Room) in the 1st National Bank Building at 332 Minnesota Street in downtown St. Paul.

The full agenda isn’t out yet. I will plan to attend and take notes as usual. I suspect they will start  digging into the reports that are due at the end of the year.

I have heard that they will be discussing speed goals and will schedule time for a public comment period on what speed goals  other entities/individuals believe should be adopted as the goals in Minnesota Statutes at 237.012 expire in 2015.

If you or your organization has an interest or ideas for what broadband speed goals should be considered, know of this opportunity to address the Task Force. The public comment period will be scheduled during the afternoon portion of the meeting.
