Broadband testing available
Friday, October 02, 2020
The Minnesota Rural Broadband Coalition is launching its Minnesota Speed Test Initiative.
The Chair of the MN Rural Broadband Coalition, Vince Robinson, spoke about the lack of broadband in rural Minnesota and how it hampers citizen’s ability to participate in telework, distance learning, and telehealth.
After collecting data from those who voluntarily participate in the speed test, the MN Rural Broadband Coalition will be able to update its current mapping of broadband speeds. This allows the coalition to get a clearer picture of broadband connections outside of the metropolitan area.
