Take the Minnesota Broadband Speed Test
Broadband is no different than any other basic utility people need and now, more than ever, it's an essential part of our daily lives. There is no doubt the lack of broadband in rural Minnesota hampers telework, distance learning, economic development, and telehealth. The Minnesota Rural Broadband Coalition's goal with this speed test is to find out exactly where broadband service is available in rural Minnesota and what speeds people are receiving. Take the Minnesota Broadband Speed Test.
Emergency Broadband Benefit Program
The Emergency Broadband Benefit is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more.
The program provides a monthly discount towards broadband service for eligible households. Eligible households may also receive a one-time discount on the purchase of a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.
