Working to Achieve Countywide Broadband Equity by 2022
UPDATE in the development of the Washtenaw County Broadband Gap filling project.
It took longer to get this project started than anyone anticipated this year, but it is now underway. To help all residents follow the progress, we have created an interactive map that can be searched for your address, or just navigate to it. Click on your parcel and it will provide information about who the internet service provider will be, an estimated completion date, and a link to the providers website. Many of the schedules are still be worked on and updated, so please don’t be alarmed if you see a date that is a few years away. All of the target dates will be updated as we get closer to your areas. Keep in mind, there are about 8,000 homes we are working on reaching, which is going to take more than 1,000 miles of fiber optic cabling. The map will be updated as new areas are activated.
In addition to these links, you can also access the map through the Washtenaw County MapWashtenaw project at MapWashtenaw | Washtenaw County, MI. Go to the layers tab and click on the “Broadband Gap Project”. Both of these map links will be updated in realtime as the project progresses.
HELP SOUGHT TO CONFIRM BROADBAND STATUS TO MICHIGAN
The Michigan High Speed Internet Office is asking all state residents, local governments and businesses to confirm their internet status through the Federal Communications Commission’s new broadband map by January 13, 2023. Over a half-million Michigan residents are estimated to not have access to broadband and having an accurate map can ensure Michigan receives its proper share of $42 billion for broadband expansion from recent federal investments. Information reported should include lack of access and challenge other incorrect information such as wrong addresses through the maps.
