CostQuest’s BroadbandFabric Data Suites

With 20+ years of broadband experience and planning, we understand the challenges faced with limited access to accurate data to develop effective broadband maps. Until now, granular broadband-specific datasets to solve geographical accuracy and location count issues of underserved and unserved locations didn’t exist. Which is why using our core Broadband Serviceable Location data, we created the BroadbandFabric Data Suites, which overlays in-depth broadband information upon locations, to continue supporting governments and the communications industry in the critical effort to close the U.S. Digital Divide. Each BroadbandFabric Data Suite contains a variety of datasets 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, design, and fulfill reporting obligations, with data built to inform these initiatives intelligently. CostQuest Associates was recently awarded the FCC’s Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric contract to solve location accuracy issues and deliver the foundational data to support a National Broadband Map. This Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric will be pivotal for initiatives to help close the Digital Divide.
