EVENT Mar 15: Why is it taking so long to get high-speed internet to all of greater Minnesota?

Happening on Monday on MN Public Radio

Monday at 11 a.m., MPR News host Angela Davis will talk to Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development Commissioner Steve Grove, a rural Minnesota nonprofit leader and a rural internet provider about what Minnesota is doing to get broadband to people left behind.

How does that affect you? Are you a parent trying to help your child  participate in online school without broadband at home?  Call 651-227-6000 or 800-242-2828 during the 11 a.m. hour or tweet @AngelaDavisMPR to join the conversation.
