Who is getting broadband due to CAF in MN?

Posted by: Ann Treacy | September 11, 2013

Last week the FCC released interactive maps and spreadsheets1 that highlight the areas that are getting Connect America Funds

The locations of the up to 600,000 homes and businesses nationwide targeted to get broadband access for the first time through the FCC s Connect America Fund are now available on an interactive map at http://www.fcc.gov/maps/connect-america-fund-phase-i-round-two2.

Last month, the FCC announced3 that providers in 44 states and Puerto Rico had requested over $385 million from the Fund which will be matched with hundreds of millions of their own dollars in many areas to quickly expand broadband infrastructure to rural communities in every region of the nation. The new FCC map zeroes in on these locations down to the census block level and zooms out for a big-picture overview of this major broadband expansion at the county, state and national levels.
