BroadMap, a leading Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data, services and solutions provider, today announced the successful and timely delivery of the October 1, 2012 State Broadband Initiative (SBI) data deliverables to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) for its state and territory partners. This deliverable marks the sixth semi-annual submission BroadMap has made to the NTIA and includes data and reports for the states of Georgia, Mississippi, Nebraska, and South Dakota, and for the territories of American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The SBI program implements the joint purposes of the Recovery Act and the Broadband Data Improvement Act to facilitate the integration of broadband and information technology into state, territory, and local economies. Under the program, BroadMap provides broadband mapping, work under the Leading Practices initiative, public broadband mapping websites, and data collection and verification applications. BroadMap’s partner states and territories can track information received from service providers through BroadMap’s unique Provider Portal, which allows providers to submit coverage data, view their data, and make changes to their coverage area through a secure, easy to use web portal.
“BroadMap provides our partners with a solution that is so intuitive, user friendly and automated that they can manage the program inexpensively,” said Daniel Perrone, chief executive officer of BroadMap. “We look forward to continuing to introduce these tools to other states and territories who are looking for a solution they can bring in house and maintain themselves at minimal cost.”
