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 reliable broadband maps that support broadband planning and policy decisions. Until now, granular broadband-specific location data sets at the coordinate-level to solve geographical accuracy and location count issues of served, unserved, underserved 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 Broadband Serviceable Locations (building structures), to support governments and the broadband industry in making effective decisions regarding broadband initiatives. Each BroadbandFabric Data Suite contains a variety of data attributes woven together to provide a true “data fabric” with complete, precise, and simple data solutions for the various challenges broadband decision-makers face. Organizations can rely on BroadbandFabric Data to fill database gaps, build a granular broadband map, assess broadband service availability, identify market opportunities, inform funding bids, plan and design networks, 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.
