Rank: 18 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Red Lake County has nearly ubiquitous access to 25/3 Mbps, which means they didn’t need to think about broadband for a while. But they also just saw an increase from 83 to 93 percent access to 100/20 Mbps. They have never received a state broadband grant. They have service providers that are engaged with providing service with minimal community support.

Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Red Lake is $786,442; broadband is one possible use.

They are in an enviable position with their providers but they are also in a position to use their ARP funding to invite providers to do more. They are code green.

Past grant: none
