The cities of Rogers and Corcoran also received news that they would be getting broadband service, with funding coming from grants and Hennepin County.
“Residents are going to be connected where they haven’t had service, and there’s a lot of resources coming this way to make that a reality for a lot of people,” said Anderson. “We know, especially through the pandemic, that internet is not a luxury. It’s not something that we can claim as nice to have. It is absolutely a requirement for modern life.”
