FCC Collecting Broadband Experiences, Speed App Data
The Federal Communications Commission is collecting broadband information from consumers to create maps that display fixed and mobile broadband availability, or lack of access. By reaching out to consumers, the FCC believes it can build more accurate maps that show where high speed internet services are currently unavailable.
Township officials and their residents are encouraged to participate and tell the FCC about their access or lack of access. The FCC is encouraging consumers to share their broadband experience by filling out a short form detailing their lack of connectivity. Supporting documents can be uploaded to this form. In addition, the FCC has a Speed Test App available that can be downloaded and run to show actual broadband speeds. Click here to learn more and to participate.
