Improving Broadband Mapping Act of 2019
This bill requires the Federal Communications Commission to establish a process that uses broadband coverage data reported by consumers and government entities to verify coverage data reported by wireless carriers.
In addition, the FCC must consider (1) including a mechanism to incorporate such data; and (2) implementing other measures, such as an evidence-based challenge process, to verify reported coverage data.
