Big news

BroadbandNow, the web site that helps consumers comparison shop for broadband service, has unveiled a new National Broadband Map that includes, for the first time, the price of service to the zip code and census block.

“We believe that affordability and access to low prices is under-covered as a topic in the discussion of digital inclusion and wanted to change that.

For where broadband is available it relies on the FCC form 477 data from carriers that has come under criticism, including by BroadbandNow, but the group says over 100 ISPs have updated that info.

Other features:

“Includes pricing: our map integrates our propriety and constantly updated pricing data from over 2,000 ISPs.
