Help the FCC Improve their Broadband Maps.

Michigan High Speed Internet Office MIHI will be doing community meetings starting in January 2023.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration will use the finalized maps to help determine future broadband expansion efforts and billions in grant funding to close the digital divide in communities across the country. Here’s how to access the FCC broadband map:

Visit FCC broadband map here, then type in an address and see if the reported coverage is accurate. You can access the site from a computer or a mobile device.

  1. Residents can submit a challenge by clicking “Location Challenge” if the location of their home or business is missing or incorrect, or “Availability Challenge” if the internet service information is incorrect.
  2. Residents should visit the website of any internet service provider that claims to serve their location and use the website’s “Check Availability” or similar tool to determine if the provider can serve their location.
  3. If they can’t, a screenshot of their website can be submitted to the FCC as evidence for an Availability Challenge.

The FCC also allows local governments, tribal governments and other stakeholders to file bulk challenges for multiple locations on behalf of their communities.To ensure an accurate map is used for funding decisions, all challenges must be submitted by January 13, 2023.
