Guam - A Washington, DC non-profit organization has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce to develop broadband capabilities on Guam.  One Economy Corporation has been tapped to complete a broadband mapping program in the territory as its mission is to connect underserved communities around the world to vital information.

The grant is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo stated, "The funding...will help assess the availability and capacity of broadband technology on Guam."  One Economy will be responsible for data collection, integration and validation of broadband capabilities on the island. 

The National Broadband Map is supposed to be completed by February 17, 2011.
