2021 MN Tribal Nation Broadband Profiles

Earlier this year, the Office of Broadband Development published broadband maps and rates for tribal nations in Minnesota. I have created tribal nation profiles, similar to the county profiles I have done in the past.

Below are profiles of the communities that have maps followed by percent of households with access to 100 Mbps down and 20 up.


Here’s a comparison of those communities looking at mapping from 2021 and 2019.

And finally data on all of the areas. Maps are only created for the areas in red below, subsequently those are the areas with profiles. (Most of the other categories are not geographically defined.)
