    2. 2. History & Mission <ul><li>History: </li></ul><ul><li>Connect Minnesota is a state-based non-profit subsidiary of Connected Nation, a national 501(c)(3) organization. Our first work in Minnesota began in 2008, mapping state broadband availability. </li></ul><ul><li>Connect Minnesota was named the state ’s “designated entity” for federal grant funding under NTIA’s “State Broadband Initiative” (SBI) grant program in 2009; Funding for the program will continue through December 2014. </li></ul><ul><li>All broadband availability data collected under the program is supplied to the FCC for inclusion on the National Broadband Map, and will be used as a means of reforming the way federal Universal Service Fund (USF) dollars are distributed. </li></ul><ul><li>Mission: </li></ul><ul><li>To support economic development across the state by assessing broadband availability , adoption , and utilization on an ongoing basis. </li></ul><ul><li>To educate and inform policy makers and stakeholders through our mapping, research and analysis. </li></ul><ul><li>To partner with public, private, and nonprofit stakeholders on efforts to expand broadband availability, adoption, and utilization. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Primary Program Components <ul><li>Data Collection & Mapping: Work with providers and the public to create, validate, and update granular statewide maps that accurately depict broadband availability on an ongoing basis, with updates available every six months </li></ul><ul><li>Survey and Research: Conduct in-depth survey research and analysis on broadband adoption and utilization among Minnesota residences and businesses, with results benchmarked over time </li></ul><ul><li>Planning: Provide support to the Minnesota Department of Commerce Office of Broadband Development and the Minnesota Broadband Task Force through detailed analyses of: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>1) all collected availability and adoption data </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2) broadband-related public policy developments </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Program Development: Establish partnerships at the local and state levels to promote and/or launch sustainable initiatives to impact broadband adoption and utilization, including digital literacy and computer ownership </li></ul>
    4. 4. Broadband Mapping <ul><li>Broadband availability maps are available at www.connectmn.org in a variety of formats and views: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A fully interactive map, called “BroadbandStat” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Downloadable maps in PDF format at both the state and county levels </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The National Broadband Map, which is administered by the FCC and NTIA, located at www.broadbandmap.gov, utilizes data collected and submitted by Connect Minnesota. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The information displayed on the National Broadband Map is approximately six months older than the data displayed on Connect Minnesota ’s website. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All maps are updated every six months through December 2014. The next update will occur in April 2012. </li></ul><ul><li>Connected Nation ’s Engineering and Research Divisions undertake an ongoing process of validating the coverage information reflected on the maps through: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>On-the-ground field validation of infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Survey research to “spot-check” availability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Public feedback via www.connectmn.org or maps@connectmn.org </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>BroadbandStat </li></ul><ul><li>www.connectmn.org > Learn > Interactive Map </li></ul><ul><li>Key Functions/Features: </li></ul><ul><li>View “last mile” broadband availability by platform type </li></ul><ul><li>Identify broadband providers at a specific address or point </li></ul><ul><li>Analyze unserved areas using population and household density data by Census Block </li></ul><ul><li>View physical location and broadband connection information for the state ’s “community anchor institutions” (CAIs) </li></ul><ul><li>Provide direct feedback to Connect Minnesota ’s mapping and data collection teams, including screenshots </li></ul><ul><li>Draw and type on the map to highlight areas of interest </li></ul><ul><li>Print, e-mail, and bookmark customized views </li></ul>
