It looks Woodstock Communications is interested in applying for a Minnesota broadband grant in Pipestone Stone. They are asking folks in rural Pipestone if they are interested in better broadband service. And similar to the survey I recently posted from the Iron Range, I’m sharing for two reasons. First to help get folks from Pipestone to respond. Second to share the survey as a model to other communities. You’ll see that Pipestone is really focused on residents current broadband connection – advertised speeds, actual speeds and cost.
Here’s the info from their website…
Woodstock Communications is considering applying for a Minnesota Border to Border Broadband grant to bring high speed broadband services to your area. Many of the internet providers are claiming to offer speeds much higher then what they can provide. To help receive the grant from the state, we need your help. We ask if you would perform a speed test to document the current providers speed offerings. This would help us determine the need for affordable and reliable broadband service in your area.
Residents in the following areas are encouraged to run our speed test and fill out the survey below to help Woodstock Communications compile needed data.
If you’re paying for 25mbps but receiving 4-5mbps we’d like to hear from you! Please share with your neighbors and friends!
