11. A different site had a screenshot of the map at the OP link (thankfully) & it looks like this

Here in Philly during the school shutdown, they *finally* discovered and accepted that lack of access and had to distribute some 50,000 Chromebooks to students the past year because leading up to the pandemic, it was estimated that upwards of 50% of 3 -12 grade students had no home computer internet access (the School District has over 200,000 public/charter/cyber-charter/alternative students - doesn't count private/religion schools). They had to shame Comcast and Verizon to get students hooked up under their special programs (paid for out of federal/local/charitable funds).

This is in the middle of the corporate HQ of Comcast who has the 2 largest towers in the city.

(L-Comcast Center, R-Comcast Technology Center)
