New Broadband Availability Map by MN Townships

heat-mapNew from the Office of Broadband Development

A new “heat” map of broadband availability in Minnesota by township (with county borders shown) is on the OBD website at http://mn.gov/deed/assets/townships-availability-25m3m_tcm1045-263543.pdf

Red (lower speed) to blue (higher speed) is measured by Percentage of Households Served by Fixed, Non-Mobile Broadband Service, shown by City/Township, at least 25 Mbps download/3 Mbps upload speeds (the 2022 State Broadband Goal). Statewide availability at 25/3 is 90.15%. Rural availability within the state is 78.04%.

You can see the map on the right – red means less than 50 percent have access to 25/3; blue means 90-100 percent have access.

  1. As usual Kerrick Township/Duquette will have to endure substandard service for years to come. Our Frontier provider/server, can expand their services to Taylors Falls, Minnesota, which borders, Wisconsin, but cannot and will not give us the same connection and faster speeds that the families and businesses NEXT TO WISCONSIN get. Just because we live in small towns in northern Minnesota, we deserve Frontier and companies like Frontier’s to invest money for extending coverage for all. We pay alot of money to these companies and deserve better service.
