2020 Minnesota Broadband County Profiles – from Aitkin to Yellow Medicine

Minnesota has two broadband speed goals:

  • Ubiquitous access to speeds of 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up (25/3) by 2022
  • Ubiquitous access to 100/20 by 2026

Using maps and data from the Office of Broadband Development and stories collected on the Blandin on Broadband blog, I have created a broadband snapshot of each county and their progress, especially on meeting the 2026 goal. (Progress toward the 2022 goal does not necessarily bring a county closer to the 2026 goal because there some broadband options will get to speeds of 25/3 but not 100/20.)

I have also coded each county with Red, Yellow or Green. These are meant be indicators of the level urgency a county might consider for their broadband planning moving forward. I factored in current percentage of access covered but also recent activity in the county and provider options available to them.

I will post an analysis of themes and lessons I learned looking at each county in the near future and will be presenting on the findings on the final day at the Broadband 2020: Connected We Stand.
