FCC Launches New Mobile Broadband Map
From the FCC
Today, the FCC published a brand-new map showing mobile coverage and availability data in the U.S. from the country’s largest wireless providers. This is the first public map showing updated mobile coverage released by the FCC and represents a significant improvement over other data previously published by the agency. It also serves as a public test of the standardized criteria developed to facilitate improved mapping under the Broadband DATA Act.
The map shows 4G LTE broadband data and voice mobile coverage as of May 15, 2021, for each of the nation’s four largest mobile carriers. This data was voluntarily submitted by these carriers outside of the FCC’s normal schedule for intake of data through the FCC Form 477.
