New MN broadband map are out; see which counties rank highest?

The Office of Broadband Development has posted new maps and stats on broadband access on their site. You can download an Excel spreadsheet with the info from the site. (Want a comparison? I tracked the same info last September when the maps and data came out.)

Here are the top ranking counties for access to 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up (25/3):

  • 1              Red Lake              99.99
  • 2              Rock      99.93
  • 3              Ramsey 99.74
  • 4              Clearwater          99.58
  • 5              Beltrami               99.38
  • 6              Stevens 99.22
  • 7              Lac qui Parle       99.14
  • 8              Swift      98.88
  • 9              Hennepin            98.86
  • 10           Dakota  97.48

And bottom ranking:

  • 78           Traverse              44.68
  • 79           Todd      44.22

And here’s the full table, looking at access by speed and rank based on 25/3 stats: (Hard to format on the blog – you can also access as a spreadsheet):
