Connect Anoka County Community Broadband Network

The Connect Anoka County Community Broadband Network, a partnership between Zayo Bandwidth and Anoka County, Minnesota, plans to make high-speed broadband services available to governments, businesses, community anchor institutions, and local Internet service providers in Anoka County and parts of nearby Isanti and Ramsey Counties. Anoka County is one of the poorest counties in the Twin Cities metro area, with significantly higher unemployment and foreclosure rates than most of Minnesota. Many areas of the county lack broadband speeds sufficient to maximize educational opportunities, government services, and public safety responsiveness. To address this need, the project plans to build a new 286-mile fiber network that will provide speeds between 100 Mbps and 10 Gbps.
