Re: Map
I noticed John Deere's interest, as well, Don, but it makes sense if their products are going to take advantage of internet connections (and GPS connections) to monitor and control crop care and harvesting.

opportunity
Looks like an opportunity. Because most providers have web sites, it should be possible to (tediously) note services provided in each area and create a map that way. In other words, use the providers' own online advertisements of service to create a map.

Re: Map
Can this be something that can be replicated in other areas?   Is it even feasible?

Re: Map
Interesting how John Deere is involved in the plan to increase accuracy in the accounting of broadband in the rural areas.  As noted the Post Office could most likely be a help in collaborating with the FCC in getting more accurate data compiled for better reports and mapping.

Map
I hadn't realized there are so many obstacles in the way of building such a map.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
