You’ll get to the bottom of the broadband mapping mess – and understand your ISP and community’s options – by participating in this Masterclass

Billions of broadband infrastructure funding have put broadband mapping back on the front-burner. You know that the federal government is about to award $42.5 billion in funds for broadband infrastructures. You also know that the Federal Communications Commission’s new broadband maps will determine how much funding each state gets.

But what if the broadband data underlying the maps is a complete mess?

  • As broadband providers, you already submit data to the FCC through the Form 477. Now, you have additional broadband reporting requirements.
  • But will your competitors’ data be accurate? How will you challenge their claims?
  • As a community broadband participant, you’ve probably been upset by repeated inadequacies in the FCC’s Form 477 data.
  • How will you assess what providers are claiming? How will you challenge their data?

The broadband mapping miasma has so many moving parts, it takes a Masterclass just to keep up…. Now you have that opportunity.

Introducing the Broadband Mapping Masterclass, presented by Drew Clark, CEO of Broadband Breakfast

Drew Clark isn’t just anyone talking about Broadband Mapping. He launched the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that ultimately forced broadband providers to identify where they offer broadband service. He then founded the first crowdsourced tool in this field,, which led him to be recruited to run the State of Illinois’s Broadband Mapping program. He is now CEO of Broadband Breakfast.

In this Masterclass, you can expect these learning outcomes:

  • Understanding the FCC’s Broadband Fabric and Challenge Process

In this section of the Masterclass, you’ll learn what the FCC has done in the past, and what it’s doing now with its Broadband Data Collection. You’ll learn about the agency’s new broadband “fabric.” You’ll learn about challenges to the fabric. You’ll learn how ISPs must submit new data and how communities’ and ISP’s challenges to that data will work.

  • Alternatives Your ISP or Community Has to Fix Bad or Missing Data

In this section of the Masterclass, you’ll learn about other options for obtaining and verifying broadband data. You’ll see concrete examples of broadband data collection by government agencies, private GIS companies, and non-profit groups. You’ll learn your options for obtaining and using better broadband data.

  • What State Broadband Authorities Can Do to Help You

In this section of the Masterclass, you’ll learn about how state broadband offices are addressing the train-wreck in Washington. You’ll see concrete examples of state maps, understand how states are gearing up to challenge the FCC’s map, and get hands-on advice for how your ISP or community can benefit from the work of state broadband offices.

Do you need to get a handle on broadband mapping? Or would you rather keep your head in the sand?
