Are You on the Federal Broadband Map?

We need every New Yorker to participate in the national broadband census to confirm the accuracy of their broadband service—millions of dollars in federal funding are at stake that New York needs to ensure YOU have the most affordable and accessible internet.

All it takes is checking your home or business address on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) national broadband map. Your location, and internet services offered at that location, will be displayed. If the information shown on the map is incorrect, we need to let the FCC know by submitting a challenge to update the map.

An accurate map will help New York State get its fair share of federal funding for broadband internet. And it will mean better access to broadband for all New Yorkers.

Deadline: January 13, 2023

Thank you for helping to keep ALL New Yorkers connected!
