CALL TO ACTION: National Broadband Map Accuracy

Your help is needed to validate the accuracy of the National Broadband Map. Accuracy in this mapping identifies need and equity of federal broadband funding.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published a new National Broadband Map. This map attempts to show where internet service is and is not available for every location in the country. The accuracy of this information is critical to the future of broadband in the state.

If this map is inaccurate, your location may be mistakenly listed as served. If that happens, state or federal sources are less likely to fund new service or upgrades. By reviewing and verifying or challenging the map, you will help create a realistic picture of service in our state.

A step-by-step guide on how you can help report accurate map data is available from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website. Challenges to the FCC National Broadband Map will be accepted on a rolling basis, but the Commission places priority on those received before January 13, 2023.
