Digital Opportunity

Office of Broadband Development

Connecting All Minnesotans

Broadband expansion projects across Minnesota improve the overall availability of high-speed internet service. To ensure all Minnesotans can connect, Minnesota must also address internet service affordability, device access, and digital skills. These three "digital inclusion" facets work together to build a "digitally equitable" Minnesota in which "all individuals and communities have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy" (National Digital Inclusion Alliance). Through the federally funded Digital Equity Act, OBD is facilitating the development of a statewide digital opportunity plan to reduce gaps in access, device ownership, and digital skills.
