Rank: 69 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Wabasha County has been stalled at 66 percent access since 2018 percent. They benefited from a state grant a few years ago. And will hopefully benefit from the most recent round of grants.

Wabasha County will benefit from a MN State Grant awarded in 2021:

Nuvera Communications, Inc. – Goodhue West FTTP – GRANT $532,232 This last mile project will serve 148 unserved and two underserved locations in Goodhue, Zumbrota, Minneola, and Belle Creek townships in Goodhue County and Chester Township in Wabasha County.

Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Wabasha is $4,194,423; broadband is one possible use.

Wabasha County has the opportunity to invest in broadband with federal funding. That would help them reach ubiquitous broadband. They are a red code community.

Past grant:

2016 – NEW ULM TELECOM, INC. MAZEPPA – GRANT: $ 317,761
