Become a Broadband Influencer

The federal government, in partnership with states, is deploying broadband funds through the Broadband Equity, Adoption, and Deployment Program, also known as BEAD. Indiana is receiving close to $870 million starting mid to late 2024. A map put together by the Federal Communications Commission or FCC, the government entity that regulates telecommunications, will dictate where these funds go.

So, we need to make sure Indiana’s broadband map is as accurate as possible.  We need your help to do this.  

  • Validating your address and Internet service available on the FCC map 
  • Applying for the Indiana Connectivity Program or ICP
  • Conducting speed tests or reporting a lack of connectivity at your address
  • Report your work on 4-H Online to receive your gift and be eligible to win an iPad.
  • Learning more about the Affordable Connectivity Program or ACP
