About the Project
In 2010 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded Arrowhead Cooperative over $16 million in grants and low interest loans to build a Fiber-to-the-Home broadband network throughout Cook County. This USDA funding is provided by the Recovery Act Broadband Infrastructure Program through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In addition, Cook County awarded Arrowhead Cooperative a $4 million grant from the 1% sales tax fund. Construction is currently provided free of cost to residential and commercial members of Arrowhead Cooperative and Grand Marais Public Utility Commission. Due to the rural nature of the area, existing telecommunications providers have not upgraded their networks to provide the critical high speed access that our citizens need. This project will connect our beautiful, serene and remote community to the rest of the global community in a way that has not been possible before.
For over 60 years Arrowhead Cooperative has been providing safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly utility services to the community. Now True North broadband access will offer high-speed technology, continuing our vision of “Connecting the Tip of the Arrowhead”!
