Dear Editor:

It’s painful to admit, but our area of Minnesota is part of the Not-Served-Nine-Percent of the population in the state that remains unserved or underserved when it comes to having access to reliable, affordable high-speed internet service.

We can’t wait any longer – and it didn’t help that the funding bill was vetoed last year. That’s all the more reason the legislature needs to adopt the House funding level, that incorporates the MN Rural Broadband Coalition and Governor Walz’s full recommendation of $70 million over the next two years.

Dennis Larson

Wilkin County Commissioner
