Isanti County is served by one large national provider. That may be a bottleneck to better access in those areas, because as we have noted in the past, lack of competition can impact the drive for improvement.
We don’t hear much from Isanti. To see improvement, they will likely need to come together as a community to seek better broadband.
Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Isanti is $7,873,344 broadband is one possible use. Unfortunately, money to invest may not be the right tool if they provider isn’t engaged.
Isanti maintains their red code. They may need intervention, such as the Blandin Accelerate program, a process to spur community acquisition and deployment of federal and state broadband funds, to find an alternative solution.
