The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, comprised of more than 2,300 businesses that employ more than 500,000 employees across the state, supports strong and continued funding for the Border to Border Broadband Grant Program in the upcoming biennium. …

But there are places in Greater Minnesota still lacking a reliable, fast Internet connection. These places tend to be in areas where geography, population density of other issues make the business case for deployment economically challenging.
