Brown County Broadband Profile: Current ranking – 27

I am doing the annual look at broadband in each county – based on maps from the Office of Broadband Development and news gathered from the last year.

Brown County ranking has slipped from 24 to 27 but that is probably more reflective of accelerated growth in other counties than any problem in Brown County. While the growth has been modest, they have seen some increase in coverage of 100/20 access.

They sought state funding in 2017 but didn’t get it; so they are working on improvements.

Info on Access:

Speeds % served 2017 % served 2018
25/3 95.92 96.31
100/20 72.89 73.76

The speeds reflect the Minnesota speed goals:

  • 25 Mbps down and 3 up by 2022
  • 100 Mbps down and 20 up by 2026

Current ranking for 100/20 access: 27
