(WMC-TV) - Funding for high speed Internet in North Mississippi has been thrown into question because of certain maps.
Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley said the federal map that shows high speed Internet coverage is wrong and unless its fixed - errors could pull the plug on hopes for federal funding for the thousands in DeSoto County without Internet.
"There is 40 percent of the land area in DeSoto County that does not have Internet service or does not have high speed Internet service," said District Four Supervisor Lee Caldwell.
Caldwell said the lack of high-speed Internet affects everything from kids ability to do homework after school to medical patients being able to order prescriptions online.
"One of the concerns from the very beginning were that these FCC maps were incorrect," she said.
FCC maps show coverage in Mississippi is adequate, including DeSoto County.
That's contrary to the results the county collected when supervisors surveyed 15,000 residents about their service.
"We can take this back to the providers, to the FCC and we can show them that their maps are incorrect and so we're hoping that not only will this help DeSoto County, but also the state of Mississippi,"
If you haven't filled out the Internet survey there's still time so the county can give feedback to the FCC.
