The St. Cloud Times reports that Minnesota is not on track to meet a goal of universal high-speed broadband access by 2015, according to a report this week from the Governor’s Task Force on Broadband.
The task force’s annual report said progress is being made, but challenges are great in some areas without public-private partnerships, the newspaper reports.
Minnesota ranked No. 24 among states for universally accessible broadband speeds, according to the second-quarter 2011 State of the Internet Report from Massachussetts-based Akami, Twin Cities Business reported.
