Broadband Mapping Initiative

We have heard from many of you about the lack of adequate, reliable internet service in your communities and at your homes, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

In an effort to better understand the state’s broadband capacity, the Central Nebraska Economic Development District (CNEDD) is excited to partner with other development districts across the state to launch a statewide broadband speed mapping initiative. As broadband has become an increasingly important part of life, further intensified by COVID-19, creating an affordable and accessible statewide network is critical for growth. This project is funded through a U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) CARES grant.

We know there are pockets of good internet services in our region, and many areas where service is limited or non-existent. Without robust internet service, our 14-county region will be challenged to attract businesses and people to our communities.
