The seventh installment in our Map of the Month series…
In honor of the November 6, 2012 elections, for the October 2012 Map of the Month, the Utah Broadband Project mapping team created maps that highlight the broadband landscape for each of the 4 new U.S. Congressional districts in Utah.
Every ten years, congressional districts in the United States are re-drawn to better reflect current population distribution. Utah’s population has grown, and grown faster than other states. As a result, Utah gained a new fourth congressional district this year. The new congressional districts were implemented on January 1, 2012 for purposes of nominating and electing officials and will go into full effect in early January, 2013, for representation and other purposes.
The two-page pdf format maps below show the maximum download speeds for consumer-level service in each district, and the broadband technology landscape for each district.
