Waseca County is not poised to meet the broadband goals for either 2022 or 2026.
|Percentage of Served Population by Speed and Date|
|100/20 (2026 goal)||75.20||75.06||98.75|
|25/3 (2022 goal)||82.19||75.30||98.75|
It’s difficult to track the progress in Waseca because the numbers from 2017 include wireless access and the subsequent numbers include wireline only. Regardless, Waseca has not seen improvement in the last two years and with no broadband grants in the works, it seems unlikely that they will see an increase soon.
To meet the speed goals Waseca would need to develop a relationship with a provider and build a momentum.

I am doing the annual look at broadband in each county – based on maps from the Office of Broadband Development and news gathered from the last year. I’m looking at progress toward the 2022 (25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up) and 2026 (100 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up) and will code each:
- Red (yikes)
- Yellow (warning)
- Green (good shape)
