Rank: 79 (out of 87) for broadband speeds of 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)
Todd County is not poised to meet the Minnesota state speed goals for either 2022 or 2026.
Todd County has benefited from a Minnesota broadband grant:
- 2017 – WCTA (West Central Telephone Association) – Northern Todd County – GRANT $902,695
Serving 209 unserved households and 6 unserved businesses within portions of Staples Township and Villard Township in Todd County with service levels to 1 Gbps down and 1 Gbps up.
- 2014 – Arvig (Mainstreet Communications LLC), Sauk Lake area
Award: $536,702. Total project cost: $1.07 million. Impact: Service to 217 unserved premises.
Todd County was part of Region 5 (the Resilient Region) focusing on broadband improvements and was a Blandin Broadband Community.
Working with the Blandin Foundation, Todd County has been focused on better broadband for a long time. They may get some help in the near future. In May 2019, CTC announced plans to build out to Todd County. That would help a lot and might build momentum.
Todd County could benefit from future grants. In 2019, West Central Telephone Association (WCTA) applied to upgrade service in Todd. (That doesn’t mean they will get the grant; they have only applied.)
