FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel Responds to Rep Higgins on Broadband Data Collection

Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel responded to Rep Brian Higgins (D-NY)'s letter asking for a progress update on the agency's broadband data collection process. Rosenworcel's response noted the formation of the Broadband Data Task Force, progress on the new Broadband Data Collection systems and processes, work on the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric, and the FCC's efforts to encourage people to use its Speed Test app as part of the agency's Measuring Broadband America program. "We are also continuing to talk directly with stakeholders, including state, local, and Tribal governmental entities, to ensure that they are prepared and able to participate in the data collection, challenge, and verification processes," said Rosenworcel. "We have engaged in discussions with a number of states and other governmental partners about the data collection systems we are developing and the challenge data that will help us verify the accuracy of our broadband availability maps."
