2022 Minnesota Broadband County Profiles – from Aitkin to Yellow Medicine

Minnesota has two broadband speed goals:

  • Ubiquitous access to speeds of 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up (25/3) by 2022
  • Ubiquitous access to 100/20 by 2026

Using maps and data from the Office of Broadband Development and stories collected on the Blandin on Broadband blog, I have created a broadband snapshot of each county and their progress, especially on meeting the 2026 goal.

I have also coded each county with Red, Yellow or Green. These are meant be indicators of the level urgency a county might consider for their broadband planning moving forward. I factored in current percentage of access covered but also recent activity in the county, provider options available to them and unique barriers.
