Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association on House Energy and Commerce Committee Passage of Broadband Mapping Legislation

“We commend committee passage of this bipartisan legislation that improves our nation’s broadband mapping. As an industry, cable internet providers share Congress’ desire to better identify those areas of the country without broadband service so that we can better target scarce resources to unserved areas where they are most needed. By supporting the FCC’s decision to make common sense improvements to data collection through the integration of ‘shapefile’ data that more accurately reflects provider service areas, we can improve on current results and build a better federal broadband map that more is more accurate and more effective. We look forward to full passage by the House.”
