So you're busy trying to figure out how to get your hands on some of that $7.2 billion in broadband stimulus money. But, you know you're going to have to figure out where your community ranks and how to fit in with evaluation criteria the BTOP and RUS folks create.
Look no further -- we have a good start on what you need. At the link above, in item number 4, you'll find two different assessment guides. One's little bit smaller than the other but both can help you get a sense of the important communities -- -- education, government, healthcare, and public safety -- -- when you're trying to define where broadband services are needed in your community.
And don't forget, FirstMile.US's recently published report: A Comprehensive Determination of Broadband Deployment to Designate Unserved and Underserved Communities Using Fact-based Measurement Criteria.
