Indiana 4-H Needs You To Be A Broadband Influencer
Purdue Extension and Indiana 4-H are working together to gather important data from Indiana communities to 1) validate address and internet service availability on FCC map with designated link 2) Conduct multiple speed tests during all hours of the day for the next several weeks with designated link OR verify internet is not available or household is under served and 3) learn about and apply for Indiana Connectivity Program [internet financial assistance].
While families may have participated in other speed tests and broadband capability surveys, current data is required and Purdue Extension is using it's visibility in all 92 counties to call upon families and youth to add to the compiled data. With your help 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.
