Internet access is essential to participating in today’s digital world. The FCC has released a new draft National Broadband Map showing where internet service is – and is not – available across the country, including Washington state. The FCC is relying on you—individuals, local governments, Tribal entities, and organizations—to review your location on the map and challenge the information if you believe it is inaccurate. The deadline to submit a challenge is January 13, 2023.
The initial draft maps are based on where internet service providers report they offer service. Your participation in the challenge process helps build a more accurate map that will identify the communities most in need of high-speed broadband investments—and ensure they receive their fair share of government funding to expand internet access.
