Chariton Valley participates in the state-wide effort to more accurately map broadband deployment and close the digital divide…. Mapping the Broadband Gap

USTelecom, joined by ITTA, WISPA and a diverse consortium of broadband companies and associations have launched the Broadband Mapping Initiative to more accurately map broadband deployment nationwide and close the digital divide.

Beginning with a pilot program in Virginia and Missouri, the Initiative will result in the most sophisticated and detailed map of broadband availability in the nation, arming policymakers with granular data to identify where broadband service is lacking and better target scarce funding.

In addition to USTelecom, the Broadband Mapping Consortium is comprised of individual companies representing providers of different sizes and technology types, including: AT&T, CenturyLink, Chariton Valley, Consolidated, Frontier, Riverstreet, TDS, Verizon, and Windstream.
