Chairman Pai's Response to Members of Congress Regarding Broadband Mapping
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai sent a letter to Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) on May 28, 2019, in response to her letter regarding broadband mapping. Chairman Pai said the FCC initiated a new data collection for mobile broadband coverage as part of the Mobility Fund Phase II and began a review of the Form 477 process to ensure the FCC’s broadband data was more accurate, granular and useful to the FCC and the public. Chairman Pai said a public feedback mechanism could improve the FCC’s broadband coverage maps and Form 477 data, suggesting the FCC’s speed test app is one way consumers can currently participate in collecting data about broadband deployment.
