Next Generation Broadband

With U.S. internet traffic increasing at unprecedented rates, 11 Dakota County cities and the Dakota County CDA have launched an educational campaign about why residents and businesses need to insist on next generation broadband to meet the needs of citizens.

Across Dakota County, households, businesses and industry would experience the benefits that would come from significantly higher broadband than we have today.  If more people are able to video conference from home in real time, it opens up possibilities for consulting medical experts, conducting business meetings and accessing online educational resources from your home.

A short video discusses the benefits of world-class broadband and how it plays a significant role in economic development, business location decisions and employment growth.
