Senator says verify federal broadband map coverage

A Wisconsin lawmaker is urging rural residents to challenge bad broadband information on federal coverage maps.  State Senator and farmer Howard Marklein tells Brownfield the Federal Communications Commission has issued maps showing rural broadband availability and speeds, but people need to verify their accuracy as soon as possible. “We as individuals, as farmers, as businesspeople have until January 13th to go into the maps and take a look at them and see if the service that the FCC has for your location is what they have on their maps.”

Marklein says the map information was compiled by Internet service providers all over the U.S.
