Broadband Access Stories

What are your neighbors saying about their lack of high-speed internet?

We have the highest speed plan yet we cannot run our TVs, computer, and a gaming system at the same time. My tv is currently spinning. We even added a “booster.” We pay for unlimited data on our phones so we don’t have to include them on our WiFi. Our son gets kicked off Google Meets which are required for school. This is very frustrating!

- Morgan

We cannot use our smart TV like we should because the connection is too slow for YouTube and/or movies.  When long distance learning, all 3 grandchildren cannot be on Zoom and their online sites at same time.  Only one computer can be used at a time, because they will get disconnected.

- Walnut Grove

I have a full time job which requires internet service. I work from home (even before and now during the pandemic.)   I often have video conference calls and have to turn my camera off due to poor connection. There have been times our internet service has been down and I've had to drive to neighboring communities to connect to wifi. When I work and when my children have distance learning, it is imperative we have excellent internet service.

- Lamberton

Please invest in access to internet!!  As a 5th generation farmer, I try to be on the leading edge of sustainability and technology.  My internet speed and connection is hindering my ability to use the tools now available.   The data I collect I can use in live time if I have connectivity and bandwidth to transfer the data.  I now download my data on sticks and drive to town to transfer/backup/analysis my data. I'm 3 miles to fiber and I have asked for quotes for faster speed - I feel I'm at an economic disadvantage due to my location.  It is top of mind as I attempt to be competitive in our global marketplace!!  PLEASE invest in internet!
