National Broadband Map Update, 8.3 Million Still Lack Access

The FCC has released the first update of its National Broadband Map introduced in November 2022. After six months, which included a challenge period where the public was able to point out possible inaccuracies, the Commission now estimates that there are 8.3 million unserved homes and businesses in the United States. That represents an increase of 330,000 over the total unserved homes in the original map. The Commerce Department’s NTIA is using the map as a tool to calculate state allocations of funds from the $42 billion Broadband Equity, Access, and Development (BEAD) Program later this summer.

FCC Broadband Funding Map Tracks Federal Awards

A new FCC Broadband Funding Map allows broadband providers to research where federal programs are assisting the construction of broadband facilities. The map includes data from the FCC’s RDOF and ConnectAmerica-2 programs, as well as programs backed by the Rural Utilities Service, the U.S. Treasury Department and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The map also offers limited broadband coverage information as of June 30, 2022, based on the earlier-introduced National Broadband Map, which remains a work in progress.

He also gave his Top 5 Tips for tackling BDC reports.
