Last day to contest FCC broadband map for more state funding
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) -Friday is the deadline to dispute the FCC’s broadband coverage map.
Many Vermonters don’t have access to adequate broadband, but a recent FCC map rendition reports the state is 98% covered. That has state lawmakers urging people to take a look at the map and dispute their own property reports.
Meanwhile, The Vermont Community Broadband Board said they’re working on disputing the FCC map on a statewide level.
Leaders have said if the map inaccurately shows Vermont as adequately covered, the state loses out on millions of dollars to improve connectivity.
