Statement on FCC Pre-production Draft of New Broadband Maps

Today, the FCC released a pre-production draft of new broadband maps.

The following statement is from Jonathan Spalter, president & CEO of USTelecom – The Broadband Association.

Mapping broadband availability throughout the country is critical to achieving 100% connectivity. The first release of the new maps is a massive undertaking and we congratulate Chairwoman Rosenworcel and the Commission on achieving this important milestone. As the maps are refined over an ongoing, iterative process, USTelecom and its members will continue working closely with the FCC on this effort and we’re committed to getting this right to achieve internet for all.
