About the Challenge

The purpose of the challenge process is to ensure the accuracy of the Nebraska Broadband Availability Map. Everyone in Nebraska is encouraged to verify the service they receive at their home and/or business is accurately reflected on the map. If not, a challenge should be filed to correct it. The challenge process is the last opportunity to correct information on the availability map. This map will guide the allocation of BEAD funds. 

Challenges will be accepted from March 15, 2025 - April 14, 2024. 

ISPs named in a challenge will receive an email notification. They will have 30 calendar days from notification to rebut. If an ISP has not provided a point of contact, publication of the challenge to the website will serve as notification.

Challenges will be published weekly on the Results page.
