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.
Mower County broadband ranking has dipped a from 14 to 79. I assume this reflects an anomaly in the mapping. (Last year’s mapping included fixed wireless access this year includes only wireline.)
Mediacom has announced that part of Mower County (Adams, Brownsdale, Le Roy, Lyle, Waltham) are part of the Gig upgrade. And the county was optimistic about the opportunities inherent in the CAF II auction.
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: 79
