HERMANTOWN — A pair of technicians from Hometown Fiber will spend Oct. 17-18 mapping the technology infrastructure of Hermantown, according to a news release from the city.

The mapping is part of ongoing efforts to determine next steps regarding broadband access in the city. Hometown Fiber was selected to assess and document the current technology infrastructure in place. The mapping will allow clearer information about current connectivity and offerings in Hermantown.

The mapping will be performed within the right of way of city, county and state roads.


Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
