​On September 23, NRECA filed comments with the FCC in support of its initiative to collect more granular data on broadband deployment. Improved data collection will lead to a more complete and accurate depiction of broadband availability, especially in rural areas, and allow for better targeting of limited federal resources to address unserved and underserved areas. NRECA supports the requirement for fixed service providers “to submit broadband coverage polygons depicting the areas where they actually have broadband-capable networks and make fixed broadband service available to end-user locations.” Further, NRECA supports the Commission’s definition of “actually available” as meaning that there is a current broadband connection or a connection could be provided within ten business days, and provided at a reasonable cost to connect service.
