Stevens County Broadband Profile: current ranking 7

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
25/3 99.21 99.22
100/20 96.73 96.74

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
