CTC starts building better broadband to parts of Todd County

Brainerd Dispatch reports…

CTC recently hosted a groundbreaking event at 11 a.m. Monday, May 20, in Browerville. CTC was the only telecommunications company in Minnesota in 2018 to be awarded the Community Connect grant bringing broadband services to rural Minnesota.

CTC also rebranded to its initials instead of using the Consolidated Telecommunications or Telephone Co. name.

CTC reports this project will bring much-needed broadband services to the communities of Fawn Lake, Philbrook, and Moran townships, as well as some surrounding areas. Construction for this fiber-to-the-home project is expected to begin soon and continue through fall 2019.

The project is being funded by a $2.1 million grant through U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Connect program.
