Minneapolis Telecommunications Network (MTN) was established in 1984 to provide the public with access to technical training and cable broadcast through a charter between cable companies and the City of Minneapolis. MTN also served as the first nonprofit internet service provider in Minneapolis.
For over 35 years, MTN offered public access to technical training, a studio space for creators, and a platform for free speech. The organization maintained and operated a fully equipped and staffed public access production studio facility until early 2020, two weeks before the George Floyd incident, when the City of Minneapolis decided that adherence to the first amendment was a threat.
MTN is a 501c3 non-profit organization now headquartered at P.O. Box 12 Hartland, MN 56042. MTN dba the Minnesota Tech Network and the Minneapolis Television Network.
