The Internet has created a sense of urgency in the last two decades faster than could have been imagined. This however isn't the case for Kevin R. Wald and his 235 employees across nine different companies in the rural state of Minnesota. It is assumed that because America is considered a first world country that every inch of our land is blessed with High Speed Internet connection. Guess again.

The state of Minnesota is ranked behind Uruguay, Latvia and Qatar, and just ahead of Bulgaria, in terms of Internet connection speeds. To put it in perspective, Minnesota has been recognized as a state since 1858, the last country on the list, Qatar became a country just a mere 44 years ago in 1971.

Businesses in rural Minnesota need the same world-class Internet service currently available in the more heavily populated urban areas. A simple boost in internet connection speed could mean so much to the state of Minnesota.
