Arvig says it will invest $19.9 million in construction projects to improve internet access and upgrade networks in seven rural Minnesota areas in 2022.
The company is entering the sixth year of a 10-year commitment to use its share of funding from the FCC’s Alternative Connect America Cost Model (ACAM) to build and improve internet networks in rural areas. This year, crews will service the rural areas of Audubon, Morgan, Parkers Prairie, Perham, Red Del, Vesta and Walnut Grove.
When construction is complete later this fall, residents in the affected areas will have access to internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, as well as television and phone service.
