Rank: 45 (out of 87) for access to broadband at 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Hubbard County looks likely to meet the 2022 goals and less likely to meet the 2026 goals. They are caught in a situation where they may appear to be in good shape because access to 25/3 is good but they are not on track for the 2026 goal. That said, they have made good strides in the last year moving from 46 percent to 74 percent access to 100/20 Mbps. They could do it again.
