We’re getting the regional study report from all angle – but I think it’s helpful to get the varied points of views. Today from the Pipestone County Star…
Pipestone County will participate in a multi-county study to find out what it would take to provide broadband internet access to under-served parts of the county.
The county board during its Feb. 14 meeting voted unanimously to accept a proposal from Finley Engineering and CCG Consulting to conduct the feasibility study for Pipestone, Chippewa, Lincoln, Lyon, Murray and Yellow Medicine counties.
According to the proposal, the study will include at least three scenarios: Building a complete fiber system; building a fiber backbone and using towers to provide wireless service; and building fiber only where it’s economically feasible and using wireless everywhere else.
