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.
Stevens County broadband ranking has slipped slightly from 5 to 7; access to speeds of 100/20 have stayed the same as last year. They are still well poised but I haven’t heard much from them in the last year. They may want to make a concerted effort to get ubiquitous coverage by the goal deadline of 2026.
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: 7
