FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel Responds to Senators Regarding Broadband Maps

On March 3, 2023, Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel responded to a letter from Sens Ted Cruz (R-TX) and John Thune (R-SD) which inquired about the FCC's National Broadband Map and challenge process. In her response, Chairwoman Rosenworcel detailed the FCC's prior actions in compliance with the Broadband DATA Act. Rosenworcel added that the FCC will accept location challenges from all stakeholders at
any time—on a rolling basis. But Fabric dataset adjustments from the vendor and challenge process are only pushed through to the official National Broadband Map twice a year, after providers have reported their availability data based on the revisions. The Chairwoman's full response to the senators' questions can be read here, in her letter.
