St. Paul, Minn.— The Office of Broadband Development announced that the Rosemount North Project in northwestern Rosemount, Dakota County, has received $499,072 grant from the state’s Border to Border Broadband Development Grant Program.
“Access to high-speed internet should be available to every household, business, and school in our community,” said Senator Greg Clausen (DFL-Apple Valley) said. “Broadband is a fundamental piece of 21st century public infrastructure, and I’m happy to see the state award this very deserving project.”
This middle and last mile project will upgrade approximately 40 unserved and 225 underserved locations in northwestern Rosemount. In a funding partnership with the State of Minnesota and Dakota County, Charter Communications will improve broadband service levels up to 940 Mbps download and 35 Mbps upload, exceeding the 2022 and 2026 state speed goals. Project area residents have been actively engaged in an effort to improve broadband service offerings in their neighborhood.
