South Dakota getting $3.3 million for rural broadband

The USDA is investing $3.3 million in rural broadband service across South Dakota. The agency says it’s the first round of investments through the ReConnect Pilot Program for unserved and underserved areas of the state.

The entire grant will help SDN Communications deploy fixed wireless broadband in rural Pennington and Lawrence counties in South Dakota, providing broadband access to 275 people, 14 businesses and two farms.

There’s another $100 million Congress allocated to the program nationally through the CARES Act for Round Two of the ReConnect Program.
