Rank: 8 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Hennepin County is dipping in the ranking but their coverage remains the same. It just means other counties are catching up to them and that’s’ good since they have nearly ubiquitous coverage.

Hennepin has the population density that makes an easy business case for providers to want to serve the area.

Hennepin County will benefit from a few MN State Grants awarded in 2021:

  • Mediacom Minnesota LLC – Minnestrista Project – GRANT $189,752 This last mile project will serve 80 unserved households in Minnestrista in Hennepin County.

The grant will likely help push Hennepin County even closer to their goal but it is their population density and metro standing that make the code green so easy.

Past grants:

  • 2017 – Mediacom Minnesota LLC – Medina 2018 Broadband Build – GRANT $62,219
