Kandiyohi County has been working on better broadband for years. They saw a big improvement in 2019, but have been stagnant since. They came close to getting better broadband with CTC and a grant but that didn’t work out in the end.
The influx of funding is an opportunity for Kandiyohi to really invest; the question is whether they can convince the whole community to buy in. For now, they remain code yellow.
