Mark your calendar now for the 2017 Border to Border Broadband Conference: Bridging the Gaps – Expanding the Impact

Rural Minnesota communities are “above average” in broadband access and use; 78% of rural Minnesota households enjoy fixed internet access at speeds the FCC defines as broadband, compared to 61% of rural residents nationally who have access to those speeds.

Drawing inspiration from around the state, this year’s conference will showcase this success with a look at the variety of approaches that rural communities have developed to expand broadband’s impact, leverage investments, and bridge the digital divide.
