The original I3 Connectivity Explorer launched in August, 2018. Since then, over 1,860 users have signed in to work with over 5,000 different localities across the US. The usefulness of the platform has been apparent from your reports of how the data from the platform has provided voice and volume to your own, local, stories. This welcome development will introduce the resource to the 1,500 member organizations of the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative.
“And the days that I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, well, I have really good days” — Ray Wylie Hubbard

- State and local officials across the US;
- Organizations and companies including the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA), Measurement Lab, The Quilt, The Enterprise Center, The Coalition for Local Internet Choice, and Broadband Communities; and
- Users like yourselves.
