A broadband map showing broadband coverage in Colorado and Larimer County has shown some inaccuracies in coverage areas, and the creator of the map, the Federal Communications Commission is asking for the public’s help to correct those inaccuracies.

There is a short deadline of Jan. 13, 2023 for the public to challenge the map’s accuracy and participate.

The map is critical in determining how a $42.5 billion pot of federal broadband funding will be divided among all 50 states in the U.S., Colorado, and Larimer County to invest in broadband architecture.

What is your broadband experience? Is it poor? The FCC needs to hear from Larimer County residents to challenge the accuracy of the map.

To challenge the map and participate, follow these steps:

  1. Go to https://broadbandmap.fcc.gov/home and type in your address before January 13, 2023.
  2. If there is no dot on your home address, camp, or business, or the location needs to be corrected, drop a pin on the map, click Location Challenge, fill out the form with the correct information, and click Submit.
  3. If the information about the broadband service offerings available at your home, camp, or business needs to be corrected, click Availability Challenge, fill out the form, and click Submit

There are estimates that Colorado could receive between $400 million and $700 million in broadband infrastructure improvement funding where distance, terrain, or lack of financial viability causes internet companies to bypass underserved areas.  For more detailed information regarding the FCC Broadband Challenge Process and video instructions go to:  https://www.larimer.gov/broadband/map
