Rank: 2 (out of 87) for broadband speeds 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Ramsey County is likely to meet the Minnesota speed goals for 2022 and 2026.

Ramsey County is a metro-based county where the market makes it feasible for broadband providers to serve broadband profitably. They have applied for state grants in the past. At one point they toyed with a municipally supported network. But the market  can take care of many of the needs.

Verizon recently announced plans for 5G expansion in St Paul. It’s likely that won’t impact their progress to speed goals, but it will offer a new option for the most urban areas.
