WASHINGTON, February 2, 2010 – Mississippi’s Office of the Governor and broadband mapping firm BroadMap have announced that they plan to work together to collect and verify the availability, speed and location of high-speed Internet access across the state.

Mississippi is working with Glen Allen, Va.-based BroadMap, the nonprofit One Economy Corporation and with assistance from public policy firm New America Foundation to develop a map enabling state residents and businesses to better understand their options related to broadband.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration recently awarded Mississippi approximately $2 million in grants for broadband mapping and related strategy.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has said the most important first step in bolstering the state’s broadband is determining which areas of the state lack the necessary technological infrastructure.

“Expanding broadband access is essential to education, health care and job creation in Mississippi,” according to a statement on the state’s official Web site.
