Mississippi Partners with BroadMap, One Economy, and New America for Mapping Broadband

February 03, 2010 -- BroadMap and the Mississippi Office of the Governor have announced that they are working together to collect and verify the availability, speed, and location of broadband – essentially high-speed Internet access – across the state. Mississippi is working with BroadMap, through the One Economy Corporation, and with support from the New America Foundation, to create a map that will allow state residents, as well as prospective manufacturers and businesses, to more easily understand their broadband service options.

Mississippi recently announced that the federal government has awarded the state nearly $2 million in grants for broadband mapping and planning activities, channeled through the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). The work will be conducted on a semi-annual basis between 2009 and 2011, providing clear and accessibly formatted data to the public, government, and the research community.


BroadMap aggregates critical data from local and national sources and conducts independent verification processes to create and provide the most complete, accurate and up-to-date maps available. BroadMap is headquartered in Glen Allen, Virginia and has offices in Lebanon, New Hampshire. www.broadmap.com

The New America Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy institute that invests in new thinkers and new ideas to address the next generation of challenges facing the United States. The company co-founded the Measurement Lab (M-Lab) with Google Inc. to support the effective study of broadband networks. New America is headquartered in Washington D.C. and also has a significant presence in California. www.newamerica.net
