Nashville, TN (AP) — Tennessee authorities are planning a location for hundreds of thousands of Tennessees who do not have access to high-speed internet.

The plan follows the initiative of other states that no longer rely on federal maps that exaggerate the coverage of some communities.

Crystal Ivey, the state’s broadband director, said Tennessee has a plan to collect and validate service data from providers for about a year and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022. The initial map costs an estimated $ 450,000.

Meanwhile, people can download a speed test app to check the speed of their internet connection and report that data to the Federal Communications Commission.
