Maps assisted the government to calculate which states had the greatest need for broad-band funding and to distribute the Infrastructure Law's resources accordingly.
On Monday, the Biden Administration outlined how states across the U.S. will be receiving billions of dollars in funding for high-speed internet access.
Over $42 billion from the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will be distributed throughout the Nation and U.S. territories for building internet access.
President Biden said the major investment aims to make affordable, high-speed internet, available across the country. He described internet access as a critical economic resource allowing children to do their homework, for workers to find jobs, and for patients to access health care.
All 50 states and U.S. territories have been awarded at least some of the funding.

South Carolina is set to receive nearly $552 million and North Carolina is set to receive over $1 billion.
