ST. PAUL -- Judy Adamec of Minnesota's Otter Tail County is a poster child for rural Internet connection problems.

The task force's recommendations, released Friday, call for a dramatic expansion and speeding up of broadband service.

The report, however, stopped short of detailing how the expansion would be funded.
