This seems like an excellent opportunity to apply technologies like Google Maps. An application that would allow people across the country to enter some demographics, what broadband/internet service they are using, how much it costs, what's available, what performance they receive, etc. would really help. Once entered, this data could be collated, sorted, summarized, etc. This information could provide an independent and perhaps more accurate view of the current state of broadband vs. the data provided by carriers.How about it Google?
Sorry - I forgot the intro for this idea:As noted in Google Moderator, the FCC has requested feedback in preparation for creating the National Broadband Plan. One of the complex issues is mapping broadband coverage - who is served/unserved/underserved, and what broadband services are available at what everywhere in the USA.
