Broadband Encouragement: How the FCC’s latest map is helping rural America

Many in rural America are encouraged by the FCC’s new national broadband map.

The map has been updated to include what internet providers are available to households and business locations. Oklahoma State University says this is a way for their state to receive more funding for broadband because now it is public knowledge who has access and who does not. The college is encouraging producers to verify their information.

The final day to fill out the information on the map is January 13th.
