BroadbandUSA: Indicators of Broadband Need

BroadbandUSA (NTIA) has announced a new map “Indicators of Broadband Need” that will be of interest to the I3 community. From their announcement:

The public “Indicators of Broadband Need” tool released today (6/17/2021) puts on one map, for the first time, data from both public and private sources. It contains data aggregated at the county, census tract, and census block level from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), M-Lab, Ookla and Microsoft. Speed-test data provided by M-Lab and Ookla help to illustrate the reality that communities experience when going online, with many parts of the country reporting speeds that fall below the FCC’s current benchmark for fixed broadband service of 25 Mbps download, 3 Mbps upload.
