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.
The numbers for Freeborn have been a little strange; some of the number for last year were higher but they may have included fixed wireless connections so I’m using the numbers I got from the Office of Broadband Development. Their current ranking is 71.
There are a couple of potential for issues Freeborn. First, if we use the numbers below, there connectivity remains stagnant. Second, there’s a discrepancy between the 25/3 and 100/20 coverage, which mean there may be people who are content enough with their access today but maybe not be in the future as new applications assume better broadband.
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: 71
