I shared the live unveiling last week during the broadband conference but each of the winners has worked hard and I didn’t do individual posts about each one so I’ll post these local announcements as I see them. This one comes from KEYC Mankato News…
Jeff Dahna is the General Manager of WindomNet, Windom’s Internet provider.
This month, Windomnet was recognized with a Courageous Leadership Award from the Blandin Foundation for their leadership in Broadband.
Windom became the state’s first city to operate a municipal fiber-to-the-home network between 2004 and 2005.
Now, schools are able to use Broadband Internet to help students complete homework at home online.
Medical facilities can take advantage of telemedicine opportunities.
