The same company that helped Georgia and Alabama build their statewide broadband maps has contracted with the State of Montana to create its own map, Gov. Greg Gianforte announced on Monday.
Montana hired Lightbox, a New York City real estate data analytics firm, to collect and organize the state’s broadband coverage into a public-facing map that policymakers can use to direct broadband infrastructure funding. The state is ranked dead last in broadband access, according to BroadbandNow, with nearly 30% of the population lacking access to a wired broadband connection.
