More Minnesota Households Have Broadband Access but Density is a Challenge in Rural Area

Recent research shows the number of Minnesota households with access to broadband at a minimum of 10 megabits-per-second download and 6 megabits-per-second upload has increased from 61.57 percent in October 2012 to 69.19 percent in June 2013.

The research was conducted by Connect Minnesota, a nonprofit agency working since 2008 to ensure that Minnesota residents have access to the economic, educational, and quality of life benefits derived from increased broadband access, adoption, and use.

This is the seventh comprehensive broadband availability data released from Connect Minnesota since the State Broadband Initiative started in 2009.

While the number of households with access to high-speed broadband has grown in some areas, rural area coverage is not as widespread as some would like due to low density.
