Internet Service Improvements
MN Rural Broadband Coalition has launched an effort for broadband expansion. They are conducting a statewide broadband speed test. At a time when students and parents are required to learn and work from home via the internet, broadband connectivity is important. This initiative will provide statistically valid data that can be used for FCC, USDA or MN State Border-to-Border grants.
Helena Township is participating in this statewide internet speed testing initiative to find out if you have broadband at home and what your speed is. Please take the following speed test by clicking this link: mnruralbroadbandcoalition.com/speedtest. Enter your information, let the test run, and you are finished. This will help bring better home broadband access in our community.
Thank you for your time and cooperation!
