COUNTY OFFICIALS ASKING RESIDENTS TO CHECK BROADBAND MAP — David Wayne
Santa Rosa County, FL (Newsradio 92.3) — Officials in our area are asking all residents to check a new broadband map that was released by the FCC and let the federal government know if the information isn’t right — they say it could affect funding available for broadband internet projects.
“The FCC Maps…we have concern that they are not accurate,” says Santa Rosa County Aministrator DeVann Cook. “Broadband initiatives would bring reliable internet to homes in areas that are underserved.”
Cook says the map could mean local governments getting less federal funding to improve local broadband infrastructure. You can check the map online at broadbandmap.fcc.gov/home.
