Strut Your Stuff: Broadband projects in MN East Range

Part of becoming a Blandin Broadband Community (BBC), is the opportunity to show off what you’ve been doing related to broadband in your community. It was great to hear from folks in East Range (Iron Range) today. Here’s the video – in progress…

The community is working on making devices and broadband available to a wider group – like Wi-Fi on buses and ambulances, computers in schools. It was really fun to hear some of the robotics-related devices (STEM kits) they are getting at the library. Super fun! And those items should be available for checkout (or maybe in library use!) this summer.

They are also doing training and consulting with local businesses, starting with tech audits. Especially given the time we’re in, it was interesting to hear about upgrades of technology with EMT. What a difference that can make!
