Rank: 51 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Houston County broadband has improved incrementally in the last year, likely due to a MN State Broadband grant with AcenTek in 2019.

Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Houston is $3,607,355; broadband is one possible use.

They have seen improvement but without receiving a grant last year and a history of not much change, it seems unlikely that they will get to ubiquitous broadband and so they are code red.
