Swift County’s partnership with Federated Telephone, supported by a MN State grant, has provided nearly ubiquitous coverage. Swift has also been working with the Blandin Foundation as Blandin Broadband Community.

Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Swift is $1,797,084; broadband is one possible use.

They have the opportunity to invest in broadband with federal funding. That would help them reach ubiquitous broadband. They might not need much. They are a code green community.
