State of Broadband in US (Q4, 2020): tracking access and affordability

Broadband Now Research recently released their latest report on broadband access in the US. I am most interested in the access versus affordable comparison at speeds of 25/3 and 100/25. They define affordable as $60/month or less.

Here’s how Minnesota sits:

  • 92.36 percent access to 25/3
    70.08 percent access to affordable 25/3
  • 68.63 percent access to 100/25
    21.1 percent access to affordable 100/25

You can get an updated and more detailed version of the report from the Broadband Now website. (They get their data by combining government and private sources.
