Video: Building Broadband Partnerships in Crow Wing County

After a factory closing a few years ago, the Brainerd area decided that technology would be their new industry. One part of this vision is a room with $30-40,000 in technology and Gig access at your fingertips where community members meet in to learn how to better use technology. It’s a community that — despite not having a four-year college — is focused on better lifelong education. They train community members to use technology better, and recruit outside technologists with the lure of the lakes.
