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.
Hubbard County broadband ranking has slipped from 48 to 55. They had received some grant funding (via Paul Bunyan) in the past. Paul Bunyan got another grant for upgrades in the area in November 2017…
Paul Bunyan Communications has been awarded a Border to Border Broadband Grant from the state of Minnesota to expand its fiber optic services to portions of St Louis, Hubbard and Itasca Counties.
As a result, the cooperative will begin expansion construction next spring that will pass a minimum of 830 locations.
Senator Utke celebrated the grant.
