Lake Shore MN will look at better broadband with help from Blandin Foundation

The Pine and Lakes Echo Journal reports…

Lake Shore is working to get broadband service to all parts of the city.

Mayor Kevin Egan reported at the Monday, March 26, city council meeting that a newly established city broadband committee has met twice. He said the Blandin Foundation will pay for a consultant who represents small communities trying to get broadband.

After further talks, the city will invite area internet providers to talk about their plans for the area.

Egan said the discussion was interesting and useful, and there is a lot to learn about an evolving strategy to get broadband service to all Lake Shore neighborhoods.

If your community is interested in getting help to look at better broadband options, consider looking at Blandin’s Community Broadband Resources Program.
