[ARCHIVED] Clallam County Residents’ Input Needed to Verify the National Broadband Map

Press Release 3

Washington state needs your help! 

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published a new National Broadband Map, which shows where internet service is – and is not – available across the country, including the state of Washington. Ensuring the accuracy of this map is critical to the future of internet access across our state. 

Why does this matter? 

Federal Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) funding is based on the state’s unserved population (internet speeds under 25 megabits per second download and 3 megabits per second upload). If this map is inaccurate, your location may be mistakenly listed as served, and state or federal sources are less likely to fund new service or upgrades. 

Do you or someone you know have low to no broadband service at home? 

If yes, it’s important that you review the map and potentially challenge the broadband accuracy of your household by January 13, 2023. 

We are encouraging residents of Clallam County to take a few moments to review the National Broadband Map for accuracy and challenge any inaccurate information. 

To do so, please visit the FCC National Broadband Map website (https://broadbandmap.fcc.gov/home), type in your address, and review the reported services. 

More information can be found on the Washington Department of Commerce website, or by viewing the Broadband Map Challenge Process.
