Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community has 100 percent access to speeds of 100 megabits per second (Mbps) down and 20 up to 66 percent. They saw an incredible increased from 50 percent to ubiquitous since the last mapping!

There are quite a few providers (CenturyLink, Comcast, BEVComm, Jaguar, Lonsdale, Mediacom, Nuvera and Integra) that offer broadband access in Scott County. Last report I noted that where there’s competition, there’s greater chance of getting improvement. Looks like that worked out for them.

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux have demonstrated an appreciation for broadband. The tribe has donated to broadband projects in other areas (Browning, MTBlackfeet Nation, MT and Northern Arapaho Tribe, NY). They supported a program where Native youth learned to use broadband and technology tools to share their stories and the stories of their culture. (The event was part of the 2015 Blandin Broadband conference.)
