A proposal to connect up to 23 unserved and 68 under-served locations in rural Nicollet County to high speed internet is ready to launch with the backing of the state of Minnesota.
Nuvera’s planned fiber-optic network, serving rural Nicollet County east of Courtland and south of Swan Lake along and south of Hwy. 24 was one of 61 projects benefiting from nearly $100 million in state Border to Border grants.
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development awarded a $479,000 grant to the $950,000 million project, which will offer 1 Gbps upstream and downstream connection speeds to a swath of unserved residences, businesses and farms.
With the funding, Nuvera will be expanding its service in Nicollet County and connecting fiber to homes and businesses within the build area. …
Nuvera’s construction timeline is yet to be determined.
