Deadline Approaching for FCC Broadband Map

Deadline Approaching for FCC Broadband Map

The American Farm Bureau Federation wants you to check the FCC’s National Broadband Map before the January 13th deadline. Emily Buckman, American Farm Bureau Federation Government Affairs Director, says the new map displays specific location-level information regarding broadband services availability… and she wants you to make sure you’re represented.

“So, the public is able to view the map at, search for their address and can see if their information about fixed and mobile services that was submitted by internet providers is actually accurate. It's pretty simple, you just take a look at the map on the website, type in your address and you can see what was reported as far as from providers.”

She encourages rural residents to check the accuracy of the map as soon as possible.

“Folks are able to take a look at the map through January 13. That is when the FCC would like to have any challenges submitted by. I can't stress enough how important it is to take a look at the map to see if it is in fact accurate because federal funding will be targeted based off of those areas most in need, and this map will determine where those dollars will be going.”
