FCC 19-79 Digital Opportunity Data Collection Report and Order

| 0

Full Report and Order from the FCC regarding Digital Opportunity Data Collection:Accurate broadband deployment data is critical to the Commission’s efforts to bridge the digital divide. Effectively targeting federal and state spending efforts to bring broadband to those areas most in need of it means understanding where broadband is available and where it is not. The census-block level fixed broadband service availability reporting the Commission currently requires has been an effective tool for helping the Commission target universal service support to the least-served areas of the country, but has made it difficult for the Commission to direct funding to the “gaps” in broadband coverage—those areas where some, but not all, homes and businesses have access to modern communications services.”
