Minnesota announced on Thursday nearly $100 million in broadband grants, the largest investment in broadband in state history.

The money will fund 61 projects and is expected to extend high-speed internet connections to more than 33,000 Minnesota homes and businesses in 48 counties.

Under stay-at-home orders during the pandemic, people in Minnesota relied heavily on high-speed internet to continue work, run their business, educate students and receive telehealth services, as well as consume content and connect virtually with loved ones.
