The FCC has released new maps which show mobile service across the US. Sourced from data from the carriers, this map is the work of the FCC’s Broadband Data Task Force. This is considered the first step in the FCC’s efforts to provide information to consumers, per the release, which cites the Broadband Data Collection project as a larger effort. This map does not focus on home internet availability.
Why do we care?
First step. This project is now showing results, and while it’s early days, anyone tracking on better broadband and the theme of unlocking that potential careas about the FCC having good data.
They’re starting to deliver on that promise.
