FCC National Broadband Map Update: December 1 Session

Provide feedback on the national broadband data map.

The Federal Communications Commission has released a draft of its national broadband data map which includes a challenge process through which localities can provide feedback on missing or misplaced addresses and service availability data previously submitted by broadband service providers and operators.

The Illinois Office of Broadband is co-hosting two identical webinars on the FCC National Broadband Map with the Illinois Broadband Lab and University of Illinois Extension, aimed to educate local governments, community organizations, and other stakeholders on how to use the map and provide feedback.

  • Noon on Wednesday, November 30
