NTIA Seeks Comment Regarding Quality and Accuracy of Broadband Availability Data


The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), on behalf of the Department of Commerce, is requesting comment on actions that can be taken to improve the quality and accuracy of broadband availability data, particularly in rural areas, as part of the activities directed by Congress in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018. Through this Request for Comments, NTIA seeks input from a broad range of interested stakeholders—including private industry; academia; federal, state, and local government; not-for-profits; and other stakeholders with an interest in broadband availability—on ways to improve the nation’s ability to analyze broadband availability, with the intention of identifying gaps in broadband availability that can be used to improve policymaking and inform public investments. Comments are due on or before 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on July 16, 2018.
