ITC is excited to announce a fiber-optic expansion to areas of rural western Yellow Medicine County. Please see map above for project area. The project does not include areas within the city limits of Canby, St. Leo, or Porter. To ensure rural area residents have access to world-class telecommunications services, ITC continues to expand its network. The introduction of fiber-optic infrastructure in rural areas of Yellow Medicine County exemplifies ITC's ongoing commitment to strengthening connectivity in this region.

Along with ITC's investment in the fiber-optic expansion, this project was awarded a Border-to-Border Broadband Grant from the Low-Population Density Program that is administered by the Department of Employment and Economic Development's (DEED) Office of Broadband Development. Broadband expansion is a major priority for the Walz-Flanagan Administration and DEED. This project is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number CPFFN0179 awarded to the State of Minnesota by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. "There is extraordinary momentum behind our work to connect more Minnesotans to broadband," said Governor Tim Walz. "Broadband is an essential component of our state's infrastructure and it's a lifeline for Minnesota students, workers, small businesses, families, and communities. We're making big investments in the future of our economy and workforce, while ensuring Minnesotans stay connected to the people who matter most."

This new fiber-optic connection will offer residents and businesses a reliable, unlimited, Fiber-Fast Internet connection along with an option for local phone service. Broadband is vital for economic development in rural areas, providing an always-on connection to the rest of the world.
