FCC Releases Draft Nationwide Broadband Map

by Jennifer L. Richter , Douglas I. Brandon and Nicole McFarland

After years of broadband data collection, the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) today released a draft of its new nationwide map of
fixed and mobile broadband availability. The map interface is
available here.

The revised map will be the basis for the National Telecommunications
and Information Administration's (NTIA) allocation to the states of
$42 billion in Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) grants
next summer. Grant funds will be divided among state and tribal
governments, who will issue subgrants prioritizing broadband buildout
in currently unserved and underserved areas, as identified by the new
map. For more on the map revision and grant allocation processes, see
last week's alert.
