National Broadband Map

Check Broadband Signal in Your Area With the National Broadband Map

Curious if broadband service in your area measures up? The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has released a national broadband map showing signal strength across the country. Recent reports show that as many as 40 percent of Americans don't use broadband connections, with 28 percent not using any Internet access. The map is part of a nationwide initiative to help integrate broadband into state and local economies.

The map shows where service is available, how it's provided, and the maximum speeds with service names and providers. While some of the terminology on the map is a little techy for my taste, it's pretty cool to see how different areas of the country measure up. Perhaps it's the first step in the US adopting Finland's pioneering initiative declaring broadband access a right. Check out how your area stacks up at broadbandmap.gov.
