Friday is the deadline for Kandiyohi County community network resident buy-in

I’ve written about this a few times in the last month, so I’ll just give the alert from the West Central Tribune

Kandiyohi County officials issued an 11th-hour appeal Tuesday to potential broadband customers in the rural northern portion of the county: If you want the service, sign up and pay your deposit now, otherwise Consolidated Telecommunication Company will be forced to scrap the project.

The deadline is Friday for homeowners and businesses in the proposed service area.

As of Tuesday, customer commitments were just under the goal, said Connie Schmoll, business development specialist for the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission.

“We only need another 70 or so to sign up,” she said.
