Broadband Mapping Goes Mobile!

Great news today in our efforts to bridge the digital divide: We now have the ability to access the national broadband map on mobile devices!

What does it mean for Connected Nation?

As we work with communities, organizations, and local providers to assess broadband needs, we use the national broadband map to help examine what areas lack availability and how we, along with our partners, can go about bringing more broadband options to those areas. We're also very excited about our efforts to help build this map by contributing our own research and data to the project.

We encourage you to check out the new functionality at and take a look at the broadband availability in your area. Do you have access, or do you live in an area that doesn't currently have broadband options?

Let us know, and join the conversation by shooting us a note on Twitter or Liking us on Facebook. We want to hear from you and get your broadband stories. Our efforts are about improving quality of life in communities and providing the benefits of broadband to more people.

Stay connected and help see our efforts through to success!
