The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last week announced data specifications for state and local governments to file “bulk challenges” to broadband availability data the FCC is collecting under the Broadband Data Collection (BDC) process.
Counties have an opportunity to ensure the new maps are as accurate as possible, which will result in historic investments in our nation’s broadband infrastructure and enhance connectivity for all residents.
As previously reported on Conduit Street, the FCC’s new data set, expected to launch this November, includes millions of broadband-serviceable locations, or BSLs. In addition, the new map uses individually geocoded locations.
On Friday, September 23, at 2:00 pm, join the National Association of Counties (NACo) and FCC staff for an update on the broadband mapping process.
