If you want to be relevant, you need broadband

The Crookston Times has an editorial outlining details of Governor Walz’s expected budget. I have written about the budget earlier, but the last line on broadband struck me…

‒ Walz also wants to bring broadband-level internet speeds to all of rural Minnesota in the next two years. He called that particular goal a “moonshot,” but what’s so pipe-dreamy about expanding and speeding up internet infrastructure across all of Minnesota? It’s the internet; everyone everywhere, if you want any real shot at relevancy and/or success, needs it at broadband performance levels.
