The National Broadband Map: An Economic Development Tool for Cities

  • Date: January 25, 2012
  • Location: Online
  • Category: Webinar Archive


Last year, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) launched the National Broadband Map (NBM), a tool local governments can use to assess broadband. This interactive online map captures 20 million datasets to show what high-speed Internet services are available in communities across the country. Because of the link broadband access has in spurring creating jobs, new economic opportunities and innovation in America, the National League of Cities is excited to promote this tool to its members. Representatives from NTIA will share how local elected officials can use the NMB to compare their city’s connectivity speed and distribution to others; to locate availability of specific services in certain locations places; and learn how to provide feedback that will further enhance the tool.
