The Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has developed Florida’s Broadband Availability Map to identify broadband internet service availability throughout the state.
The Broadband Availability Map identifies a location’s speed, connectivity, and access to broadband services. These insights allow the state of Florida to better identify and reach unserved and underserved areas of the state.
The map will be an asset to local communities and internet service providers to assist with broadband planning efforts.
Why is this important?
The results of this broadband speed test are crucial to progress and future accessibility of quality internet service as well as directly impacting grant funding and support of TCEC’s broadband internet service with Conexon.
Tri-County Electric Cooperative is partnering with Connect to launch and deploy a nearly 2,400-mile fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network, a project representing Florida’s first FTTH project launched by an electric cooperative.
The Connect, powered by Tri-County Electric Cooperative, network will deliver world-class internet service to approximately 12,000 to 15,000 homes and businesses across Jefferson, Madison, Taylor and Dixie counties. Upon the project’s completion, 100 percent of Tri-County Electric members will have access to the service.
