Waseca County Broadband Profile: current ranking 25

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.

Waseca County Broadband ranking has dipped from 3 to 25. It looks as if the coverage has gone down, but this might actually reflect different maps. The maps from last year included fixed wireless solutions; this year it’s wired only.

But Waseca should see even better results in the future. Consolidated Communications is upgrading parts of Waseca County – although that will only include speeds up to 80 Mbps, all competitively priced. And Mediacom has announced upgrades to gig service in Janesville, Waldorf and Waseca.

Info on Access:

Speeds % served 2017 % served 2018
25/3 98.75 75.30
100/20 98.75 75.06

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: 25
