Minnesota Broadband Statistics

A recent study conducted by the non-profit organization, Connect Minnesota, found that more than a quarter of Minnesotans still do not have broadband in their homes. One of the top two reasons cited for not having broadband in the home is fairly obvious – cost. Of those without broadband in their homes, 18% reported that they do not have broadband due to cost. However, the most popular reason reported by 29% of those without broadband in their homes is that “…there isn’t content relevant to them on the Internet”.  

Wow, that statistic really shocked me! I can’t imagine someone believing that the Internet contains nothing relevant to them! If you’re surprised by this too, and want to learn more, start by checking out today’s article from MPR, then be sure to follow the article’s links!
