       new and updated data to be used to determine areas served, unserved, and underserved by broadband
       across the State. Connected Nation will be reaching out to all broadband providers for service area data
       and speed information for all fixed broadband service areas, to develop various layers for Illinois
       broadband maps that will be publicly available early next year. This presentation will review the project,
       data and information needs, as well as how individual provider information will be processed,
       aggregated, and analyzed to develop the broadband maps.
