LINCOLN – The Nebraska Broadband Office is seeking input from the public over the coming weeks on the latest version of the Nebraska Broadband Availability Map.
The map is intended to represent all served, underserved, and unserved broadband serviceable locations across the state in order to help identify priorities in the efforts to expand internet access.
The map can be viewed at https://ndot.info/community. Comments can also be left by the public at that link.
There will also be opportunities for in-person discussion at a series of meetings being hosted by the Broadband Office. Upcoming meetings in central Nebraska include:
- Grand Island, Sept. 27, 4-6 p.m., Bosselman Conference Center, 700 E Stolley Park Rd.
- Valentine, Oct. 3, 4-6 p.m., Niobrara Lodge, 803 E Hwy 20
- North Platte, Oct. 9, 4-6 p.m., Holiday Inn Express, 300 Holiday Frontage Rd.
- McCook, Oct. 10, 5-7 p.m., Cobblestone Inn, 1301 US-83
Meetings are open to the public and will include a map-focused discussion, as well as provide an opportunity to learn about broadband programs and buildout across the state and provide input into digital access, affordability and need for technical skills to create equitable distribution of resources.
