“Free LightBox Montana opportunity to get an accurate account and assessment of the current broadband landscape,” said Chad Rupe, Broadband manager for the state of montana. “This is an extremely valuable tool as we will not need to rely on a one-size-fits-all national approach to our broadband infrastructure. LightBox is the perfect partner for this project due to its proven track record in providing the highly accurate datasets and GIS expertise to create end-to-end solutions.”
“Georgia and Alabama have already leveraged LightBox data to create highly accurate broadband usable location mapping, as part of the federal government’s efforts for greater digital equality,” said Price charged, Vice President of Government Solutions at LightBox. “States are wisely taking control into their own hands to collaborate with the best data provider and GIS technology available to create their own state maps.
