How can we improve Broadband.gov?

The broadband availability maps are not nearly detailed enough.

I work in rural Alaska deploying electronic health records (mostly tribal clinics). The internet is very slow out there. Our wide-area network, used for health data exchange, is slow because we don't have the luxury of landlines. We are often dependent on satellite-based connectivity. Internet, for such things as research on medical conditions, and within the formal patient care setting, for retrieving patient education reference material, is slower still in most settings in our environment. We need better connectivity. And we need the FCC's continuing support in order to provide healthcare service. So we need better data showing the needs on your maps.
