NATE Statement on the FCC’s Release of National Broadband Map

(Washington, D.C.) – NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association issued the following statement today following the Federal Communications Commission’s release of the new, pre-production draft of the National Broadband Map.

“NATE has long been supportive of efforts by various federal agencies and Congress that seek to update broadband coverage maps, especially in rural America where there are many white spaces to fill. NATE member companies on the frontlines of deployment know better than most where coverage gaps exist,” said President & CEO Todd Schlekeway.

“NATE congratulates Chairwoman Rosenworcel and the FCC staff who worked diligently to develop the new pre-production draft of the National Broadband Map. It is imperative that a diverse group of stakeholders in all 50 states now provide input on the draft of the National Broadband Map as accurate and timely coverage maps will provide the federal government the clarity and information to make more efficient, targeted use of funds so that NATE member companies can deploy broadband to the areas that truly need it, thereby helping to close the digital divide,” added Schlekeway.
