Rural MN needs broadband funding

Letter to the Editor


Submitted by Mark Thell, Carlton County Commissioner

It’s painful to admit but our area is part of the Not-Served-Nine-Percent of the population in the state that remains unserved or underserved when it comes to having access to reliable, affordable high-speed internet service. We can’t wait any longer, and it didn’t help that the funding bill was vetoed last year. That’s all the more reason the legislature needs to adopt the House funding level that incorporates the MN Rural Broadband Coalition and Governor’s full recommendation of $70 million over the next two years.
