Citizen input needed: Help improve Washington's broadband access

FCC Broadband map survey

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released a draft of its new National Broadband Map. This map shows where internet service is - or is not - available, right down to your neighborhood and street address. 

The information on this draft map comes from internet service providers reporting, which may not be fully accurate. YOU can dispute and challenge map information you believe is inaccurate. 

The accuracy of the final FCC map will directly impact Washington's federal broadband funding allocation in the coming years and support our cities ability to increase connectivity for our residents.

How can you help? 

  • View the map at broadbandmap.fcc.gov
  • Enter your address to find information about the fixed and mobile services available
  • If those services are not actually available, file a challenge through the map interface to correct the information 
    • You may also correct information about your location and/or add information if it is missing 
    • The map also allows you to view mobile wireless coverage provided by cellular service providers

THANK YOU!
