What is Broadband Serviceable Location Data?

CostQuest’s BroadbandFabric Serviceable Location Data is the first database built specifically to identify structures eligible to receive broadband service. Also referred to as “broadband-serviceable locations.”

In broadband deployment projects, providers must know exactly where a structure is in order to provide that link to broadband service. 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.

CostQuest’s BroadbandFabric Data Suites

Each BroadbandFabric Data Suite contains a collection of data delivered to you as a .CSV dataset that easily imports into any major GIS or visualization software. These Data Suites are built specifically to support your team through various broadband initiatives.

CostQuest's Broadband Serviceable Locations - BroadbandFabric Data Suites

The FCC recently awarded CostQuest the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric (Fabric) contract to solve location accuracy issues and provide the foundational data to support a National Broadband Map. This Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric data will be vital to closing the Digital Divide.

Using our core Broadband Serviceable Location data tied directly to federal broadband initiatives, we created the BroadbandFabric Data Suites to continue supporting governments and the communications industry in their broadband expansion initiatives. The BroadbandFabric Data Suites are a collection of unique datasets first of their kind to guide broadband deployment, business planning, and policy decisions.

Each dataset contains Broadband Serviceable Locations at the coordinate level and universally ties with critical data such as broadband availability, funding eligibility, cost, demand, demographics, and MORE to help decision-makers achieve success through the lifecycle of their broadband projects. Especially for those participating in Infrastructure, Investment, and Jobs Act BEAD and other broadband funding programs.

Your complete guide through the Digital Divide

You can leverage BroadbandFabric data to build a broadband availability map, inform network plans, designs, financial modeling, manage a broadband program, funding determination, opportunity assessments, and regulatory filings involved with broadband deployment projects. If you’re not sure which BroadbandFabric Data Suite is best for your team’s needs, we’re happy to help match you with data that is right for your project.

Get broadband-specific data

The BroadbandFabric Data Suites were developed by broadband experts and data scientists with deep roots in broadband economic network modeling and mapping. Each Broadband Serviceable Location we identify is a residential or business structure where a broadband connection can be installed. Our Broadband Serviceable Locations and rich data layers are NOT for insurance or real estate projects. The BroadbandFabric Data Suites were designed to support broadband initiatives.
