Broadband and Business: Leveraging Technology to Stimulate Economic Growth
Download the Infographic
Continuing our efforts to show why broadband is vital for economic development, Connect Minnesota conducted a new business technology assessment in 2013 to measure how businesses in the state are using technology.
Below is Connect Minnesota's 2013 Business Technology Survey, featuring data from 801 businesses across the state. The survey shows that broadband is a vital economic engine for the state, allowing businesses, industry sectors, and communities to thrive, grow, and prosper. Based on these data, Connect Minnesota estimates that nearly 35,000 Minnesota businesses - 24% of all Minnesota businesses - still do not utilize broadband technology.
We invite you to explore, examine, and most importantly, share these results.
