CostQuest’s BroadbandFabric Data Suites

With over 20+ years of experience in the broadband industry, CostQuest understands the challenges faced with limited access to granular and accurate data to develop effective broadband maps that support broadband planning. Until now, granular broadband-specific data sets to solve geographical accuracy and location count issues of underserved and unserved locations didn’t exist. Which is why using CostQuest’s core Broadband Serviceable Location data, we created the BroadbandFabric Data Suites, which overlays in-depth broadband information upon serviceable locations (building structures), to support governments and the broadband industry with critical broadband deployment initiatives. Each BroadbandFabric Data Suite contains a variety of data attributes woven together to provide complete, precise, and simple data solutions for the various challenges associated with broadband design, buildout, and reporting. Organizations can rely on BroadbandFabric Data to fill database gaps, build a granular broadband map, assess market opportunities, inform funding bids, plan and design networks, complete reporting obligations, and more with data built to inform these initiatives intelligently.

Who we are

CostQuest Associates (CQA) has long led the broadband consulting industry in the knowledge of costs, economics, network modeling, valuation, appraisal, mapping, and regulation services. Our team is now blending its extensive broadband knowledge with data science to develop the most precise data to support business and policy decisions for broadband initiatives. The love of the challenge and commitment to precision makes us who we are. We work to get it right.
