What to Expect after filing a Location Challenge

When you submit an individual challenge to the location information shown on the National Broadband Map, it will be reviewed by the FCC and the FCC’s contractor, CostQuest, on a rolling basis.   The FCC, in consultation with CostQuest, will decide whether to accept the challenge and incorporate it into a future version of the location information shown on the map

Changes and additions to the locations displayed on the map will appear in a future version of the National Broadband Map released after each bi-annual collection of availability data from internet service providers.  These changes and additions are based on challenges as well as updates to the underlying source data that is used to create the points that display on the map.

You can view, manage, and track your challenge(s) by creating an account in the BDC portal.  For information about how to create an account and what you will see when you login, see: How to View and Manage Location and Availability Challenges.
