According to the West Central Tribune…
LTD Broadband spent the summer months building broadcast tower sites across the county and is now offering high-speed internet to rural homes and businesses.
So far, 31 towers have been built, with seven more scheduled for completion this fall.
When completed, nearly every rural location in the county will have wireless access to broadband with speeds up to 25 megabits per second, the company said in a news release. Business-dedicated connections will be available at up to 500 Mbps. The company offers plans capable of streaming high-definition video with unlimited data for $30 a month.
The article alludes to Kandiyohi’s earlier plan for broadband…
Kandiyohi County officials had hoped to meet some of the need with a $4.9 million border-to-border grant from the Minnesota Office of Broadband Technology. The project, in partnership with Consolidated Telecommunication Co. of Baxter, would have brought fiber lines to 1,600 homes and businesses in rural north-central Kandiyohi County.
The project fell apart this past summer, however, when not enough customers signed up and made deposits to make it financially viable for Consolidated Telecommunication.
