Increasing the Color to the E-rate Maps

Today we are pleased to release our first update to the FCC E-rate Maps of Fiber Connectivity to Schools and Libraries reflecting feedback we have received from stakeholders. These valuable data from state programs, school districts, and Internet providers across the country have assisted us turn the gray, not known, parts of the map to a identified fiber connectivity status.

We are grateful for the interest these types of maps have already received and are pleased to release an updated version of the maps today, just one week right after our initial release. This edition of the maps includes comments obtained and verified as of 3: 30p EDT on 8/18/14 and changes the weighting schemes to give a stronger preference to data submitted expressly for the purposes of this E-rate proceeding.

The E-rate maps will continue to evolve and improve, along with the underlying data, available on the E-Rate Modernization Data web page. We hope that stakeholders in the E-rate process will continue to stay involved with our team by submitting comments to schoolfibermap@fcc. gov for institutions and libraryfibermap@fcc. gov for your local library.
