Happy Maps-mas from the FCC

The Federal Communications Commission’s long-awaited effort to more accurately map high-speed internet access nationwide went live Friday. The draft broadband maps, which have been in development for years, use geolocation data to show where wireline and wireless internet is available across the United States. Previous attempts by the FCC to map broadband access used census data, resulting in maps that vastly overstated coverage.
