Please take this short survey to help us identify the need for better internet service in Koochiching County and Kabetogoma.

The Koochiching Technology Initiative (KTI) is a group of community members who are actively
seeking to improve internet access for people and businesses in Koochiching County. KTI came
together in 2018 out of a longstanding recognition of the critical importance of improving internet
access, integration and skills throughout our community. We have been accepted as a Blandin
Broadband Community: a two year Blandin Foundation program of planning, consultations and
possible funding to begin in December of 2018.

The Koochiching Technology Initiative is part of Voyage Forward and will contribute to the completion
of all Destiny Drivers selected by our community. See for details.
Our first step is this survey to measure the current access to and quality of internet services for
business and homes. The results will be used to plan improvements to internet access, speed, service
and reliability in Koochiching County and Kabetogama. Moving forward, KTI will work with internet
service providers, governments, other stakeholders and potential funding sources to bring broadband
to our communities.
