Lansing, MI. (August 27, 2018) - A subsidiary of nonprofit Connected Nation has promised to bring high-speed internet to every user in Michigan, with the help of the state's governor, Rick Snyder. Connect Michigan has been promoting the idea of ubiquitous access and adoption of broadband for eight years. The current goal, shared in a recent report by the Michigan Consortium of Advanced Networks (MCAN), is threefold:

  • To accomplish speeds of 25 megabits per second download and three megabits per second upload to every resident and business by 2022;

  • To attain household adoption of 95 percent by 2024; and

  • To achieve gigabit per second by the year 2026.
