Rank: 43 (out of 87) for access to 100/20 megabits per second (Mbps)

Dodge County has held steady at about 75 percentage coverage to 100/20 Mbps broadband since 2018. Grants awarded in 2017 and 2018 likely helped them get to that level but there’s much recent activity. While one of their broadband providers was acquired recently, and that might mean expansion, it’s more likely that the community will need to get active and engaged to see improvements.

What we learned in the past:

  • 2017 – KMTelecom – Rural Kasson Fiber Build – GRANT $606,108
