Updated Minnesota Broadband Maps Now Available

News from the Office of Broadband Development… (remember – the applications for broadband funding are now being accepted)

Many mapping and data tools reside on the Office of Broadband Development’s Maps & Data webpage, including the newly updated interactive map and individual county maps that among other things, help determine if areas of a proposed broadband development project might be grant eligible under the criteria of the 2016 Border-to-Border Broadband Grant Program.

The interactive maps show the currently unserved and underserved areas of the state. After entering a location, you can access the maps by clicking on “Maps/Data” at the top of the page and then “Access” on the drop down menu, and then the first option which is the 2016 grant eligibility overlay. Individual county maps are also available. Scroll down to “County Maps” and click on “2016 State Infrastructure Grant – Unserved and Underserved Areas.”

If you have any questions regarding these tools, please send an email to deed.broadband@state.mn.us .
