Today we met up with the Chisago Lakes BBC team. Like the other BBC communities, Chisago has been dealing with the COVID challenges of the last year. They have been focus on a few areas:
- Getting older folks connected with computers and training (computers going out now)
- Getting better broadband in the area, including a survey, push to get people to take the speed tests
- Working with businesses – specifically doing video tours of manufacturing plants for students
- Building a new website for the Chamber – to be unveiled very soon
All of the efforts are off the ground, a few are just about ready for prime time. I am particularly looking forward to some of the stories they have collected from folks who are happy and unhappy with their home broadband.
