Rank: 9 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

In 2018, after partnering with Federated Telephone Cooperative on a successful MN Border to Border grant, Big Stone County moved to top 10 ranking for access to 100/20 Mbps broadband. Their broadband access remains the same; their ranking slips only because other counties are doing even better.

They receive a green code because they have over 99 percent covered but they will likely need a good push to get to ubiquitous broadband.
