MN Media’s take on broadband budget and speeds in House and Senate

From KDAL (Duluth) – Duluth Representative Simonson Says GOP Broadband Bill Is A “Disgrace”

From DL Online – Legislature should fund rural broadband “Enough talk. Now is the time to act. We urge Gov. Dayton and the state Legislature to get behind the creation of a $100 million broadband infrastructure fund to provide assistance to public agencies, private corporations and nonprofit organizations seeking to bring broadband technology to rural Minnesota.
