FCC’s Broadband Map to be Released on Feb. 17… And an App for Signal Strength

The Federal Communication Commission's National Broadband Map is to be released on Thursday, February 17. It is expected to show details on extending broadband coverage across the U.S. The initiative to create the map was part of the American Reinvestment and Recoveray Act (ARRA) and is intended to guide policy-makers for further investment in extending broadmap coverage especially in rural areas. One of the pieces of information that the map will reveal is signal availability, download speeds, and type of technology.

But...if you are interested today in your signal strength, well, "there's an app for that." Android users will have an app from Signal 3 using their OpenSignalMap according to Mashable.
