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.
Clay County has improved their broadband ranking; going from 22 to 19 with 83 percent coverage. Clay County was listed as one of the 9 worst served counties in 2010; since then they have been continually improving.
They may see more improvements with $1.5 million USDA loan going into the area for smartgrid development.
Info on Access:
|Speeds||% served 2017||% served 2018|
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: 19
