The Federal Communications Commission authorized funding Monday that will help expand broadband in Stearns County over 10 years, according to a release.
The commission approved more than $28 million to help expand broadband in Minnesota, and providers will start receiving funds later this month.
Midcontinent Communications will receive $719,916 in funding over 10 years to expand services in Stearns County, according to the release.
The funding will help 280 locations gain access to broadband. Across the state, the funding will expand service to more than 10,000 homes and businesses.
