Presley: FCC maps will cost broadband funding
Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley announced that the Public Service Commission yesterday unanimously approved the first in a series of filings with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the purpose of expanding cellular telephone coverage and high speed internet service in Mississippi.
The filings come in response to FCC requests for comments on coverage issues associated with its Mobility Fund and National Broadband Map. The FCC distributes funds for mobile and broadband assistance based on need, heightening the importance ofaccurate data on where such service is lacking. Presley says the current maps on file with the FCC show that Mississippi is almost entirely covered with high speed internet service which he says is inaccurate.
