In 2011, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) launched the National Broadband Map (NBM), a tool local governments can use to determine the level broadband access in their communities. Join NLC and NTIA on January 25 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time for a webinar, entitled The National Broadband Map: An Economic Development Tool for Cities which will show how cities can use this tool and provide feedback so it can be further enhanced to suit their needs.

NLC is excited to promote the National Broadband Map to its members because of the impact it can have on increasing broadband access to their communities. 

Broadband, which is commonly defined as high-speed Internet service, can enhance educational and workforce training opportunities, and drives innovation - factors that point to a robust and thriving economy and can help the nation compete in today's global economy.
