Here is video of last week's Broadband mapping event in DC, courtesy of Paul Brigner. As expected, Virginia Maloney talked about the NYCEDC's crowdsourced initiative - the NYC Broadband Map, Anne Neville of the NTIA mentioned its $300 million mapping budget for states. Greta Byrum of OTI emphasized that access /= adoption,and that the NTIA and state maps lacked granular accuracy, she used the fcc's 477 data instead, noting that all the maps lacked pricing information. Mike Byrne of the FCC suggested that his mapping operation had a startup mentality, with a healthy API down to the census tract level. They have gone to some effort to profile broadband users according to their usage habits.
