New maps show local broadband deficit
Broadband speeds are measured in megabits. A bit is a tiny unit of data, and a megabit represents 1 million bits. The higher the number of megabits per second, the faster online activity should be.
The Seneca and Wyandot data is from a new mapping resource tool Broadband Ohio released Tuesday on its website, broadband.ohio.gov.
The tool “more accurately shows how many of the state’s households are connected to high-speed internet, providing a clearer, more detailed picture of Ohio’s broadband availability gaps,” according to a news release from Lt. Gov. Jon Husted.
The tool includes a statewide map along with profiles on each of the 88 counties.
