Efforts to get high-speed internet in some homes and businesses in and around Koochiching County received a boost this week when Paul Bunyan Communications announced it’s applying for a grant through the Border-to-Border Broadband program.
If funded, the company could offer services to more than 1,200 locations in Kabetogama, Pelland Junction, Ericsburg and Ray.
The effort is assisted by Koochiching Technology Initiative, a volunteer community initiative founded in 2018 to leverage technology and internet tools “for a thriving future in Koochiching County and Kabetogama.” Members of the KTI steering committee include Harley Droba, Alysa Hackenmueller, Paul Nevanen, Soren Olesen, Ted Saxton, Darcy Sullivan and Jim Yount.
