WASHINGTON, September 22 – Today is September 22, 2008. Happy One Web Day and Happy One Web Week!

BroadbandCensus.com has been involved in the preparations for One Web Day since the beginning of summer. We believe that this day marks an opportunity for all internet users to pause, take stock, and ask themselves: what are my broadband internet options? BroadbandCensus.com, a free web service, can help you answer that question.

The message that BroadbandCensus.com brings to One Web Day is three-fold:

  1. 1. Take the Broadband Census! As part of One Web Day, we encourage everyone to go to http://broadbandcensus.com/census/form, and answer a seven-question survey. You will then have the opportunity to take our free speed test, which allows you to compare your promised with your actual internet speeds.
  1. 2. We are wishing you a One Web Week because of our Broadband Census for America Conference THIS FRIDAY, September 22, 8:30 a.m. at the American Association for the Advancement of Science. See http://broadbandcensus.com/conference.
  1. Sponsored by Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Texas at Austin, Virginia Tech and BroadbandCensus.com, the Broadband Census for America Conference will be the first major event about publicly-available data about broadband connections. Featured speakers at the event include:
  1. • Eamonn Confrey, First Secretary, Information and Communications Policy, Embassy of Ireland.
  2. • Rachelle Chong, Commissioner, California Public Utilities Commission
  3. • Professor Kenneth Flamm, University of Texas at Austin
  4. • Dr. William Lehr, Economist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  5. • James McConnaughey, Chief Economist, National Telecommunications Information Administration
  1. For the first time, officials from both Connected Nation and their critics at Public Knowledge will share the stage to discuss broadband mapping.
  1. 3. As part of the lead up to One Web Week, BroadbandCensus.com has begun publishing a series of state-by-state articles profiling the broadband deployment and data in each of the 50 United States. We’ve profiled about one-third of the country so far, and plan to keep going until we’ve done all of them.
  1. Click here for the complete (and growing) list of articles. The article-by-article list is below.

Finally, let me conclude a personal note: About eight months ago, I launched BroadbandCensus.com because I believe that the public needs better local broadband information.

We are making huge progress in helping policy-makers understand the central importance of broadband — and about how publicly-available data can help drive broadband availability, competition, faster speeds and lower prices. If there is one thing that everyone says they agree upon in this debate, it is the need for BETTER BROADBAND DATA. BroadbandCensus.com is all about making broadband data free and publicly available.

We hope you will get involved with BroadbandCensus.com. Here are three simple things you can do to help:
