The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) developed a Broadband Accessibility Map as part of their statewide Broadband Initiative and is currently seeking public comment.
The map is available on the TNECD mapping site. Searchable by address, the map includes information for all 95 counties, covering broadband availability, speed and technology.
TNECD invites broadband providers, local leaders and community members to provide input on the map via this form.
The public comment period closes on June 13th, 2022.
“There are many areas within Maury County that remain without access to broadband, which is now such a critical component to everyday quality of life.” Maury Alliance President, Wil Evans said. “Because of this, Maury Alliance encourages all Maury County residents to review the interactive map and provide feedback regarding your current service availability. This important information will be used as TNECD works to release an updated version later this year.”
Following the June 13th deadline, TNECD will work with Connected Nation to make any necessary validations and adjustments to the map. TNECD anticipates releasing an updated version of the map in late summer 2022.
