Broadband availability is about connections, but providers must know exactly where a structure is in order to provide that link. To get pinpoint accuracy for all locations, we aggregate hundreds of millions of data points, apply statistical scoring, and managed crowdsourcing to identify the precise locations of virtually every structure that is a candidate for broadband.
