Rank: 80 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)
With a population density of 2.6, Traverse is unlikely to get better service without community engagement. In 2018, they made a deal with a wireless provider; the county helped them to get started and set up. The provider has been successful but the connections available do not meet the 100/20 Mbps or 25/3 Mbps speed goals. But as someone from the county pointed out at the time, it was better than what they had.
Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Traverse is $632,063; broadband is one possible use.
Todd County may benefit from 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 especially with state and federal funding on the horizon. They are a code red community.
