The need for accurate data pinpointing where broadband service is available, and where it is not available, has never been greater. Service providers and governments use broadband maps to make decisions about where service is needed and how to fund the expansion of broadband services.
The FCC is in the process of updating its current broadband maps with more detailed and precise information on the availability of fixed and mobile broadband services. The Broadband Data Collection (BDC) program will give the FCC, industry, state, local and Tribal government entities, and consumers the tools they need to improve the accuracy of existing maps.
