The maps are designed to call attention to areas without high-speed
internet or mobile 5G service.

Don't know if your area has broadband internet or 5G yet? On Friday,
the Federal Communications Commission released new broadband maps
showing where high-speed internet access and mobile 5G service are
available across the US.

The FCC's prior coverage maps have been inaccurate, showing that
Americans should have been able to get online with higher speeds when
they weren't actually covered by internet service providers. Or if
they were, they were getting far below the 25Mbps download speed
threshold that the FCC established for broadband internet. With these
new maps, Americans can see internet speeds they can get at any street
address in the country.
