I just got off the phone with Drew Clark, Executive Director of . His group has the very interesting goal of helping consumers learn more about broadband service and speeds offered in their geographic area. Drew is a long-time technology policy reporter in DC who is also currently pursuing his law degree because he has always been interested in law and “it will help me do my job better.” Yep, he’s one of those overachievers. is asking for people to go to their site and enter their broadband information for their respective area to get a better national footprint of broadband offererings. The site states:

“America has a need for better information about broadband. The country needs to know where high-speed Internet service is available and where it isn’t. And that is just the first step. Next, consumers need to know the extent of broadband competition in their local area. They need to know the names of the carriers that offer broadband, the speeds they offer, and the prices they charge. intends to fill this gap. We invite you to help us by taking the Broadband Census.”

I just entered my information and invite you to do the same.
