Precision Ag Connectivity & Accuracy Stakeholder Alliance
Bringing broadband to rural America through better data
"We recommend that the broadband availability and quality data be independently verifiable, using methods consistent across the country."
--FCC's Task Force for Reviewing the Connectivity and Technology Needs for Precision Agriculture in the United States (11/10/21)
The Precision Ag Connectivity & Accuracy Stakeholder Alliance (PAgCASA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to design, field test, and deploy technical and policy tools needed to ensure accurate broadband mapping and equitable deployment across America to ignite rural prosperity.
Consistent with the Broadband DATA Act of 2020 and the recent findings of the FCC's Precision Ag Task Force, PAgCASA aims to drive transparent broadband mapping methodology specific to rural America by establishing a standards-based, open source toolkit for collecting accurate, granular, crowdsourced, and citizen-centric data.
Accurate broadband maps are essential to inform wise infrastructure investments and effective broadband deployment for communities still left behind.
