WASHINGTON, October 12, 2009 – The National Telecommunications and Information Administration last week awarded the first four broadband data and mapping grants to organizations that are not Connected Nation.
The awards will fund broadband data and mapping in California, Indiana, North Carolina, and Vermont, and are noteworthy because the grant highlight need for independent collection and verification of broadband data.
“All four recipients plan to collect data directly from broadband providers, each also described plans to collect or utilize data from other sources,” read the press release issued October 5 by Commerce Department’s NTIA.
