Working on broadband initiatives but need reliable data to guide the way? Using CostQuest’s core Broadband Serviceable Location data tied directly to federal broadband initiatives, CostQuest developed the BroadbandFabric Data Suites, which are various data sets that come with MORE data attributes on top of the CostQuest’s base Broadband Serviceable Location data, for users to choose from based on their data needs. All of these data sets are designed and optimized to support government entities and the broadband industry in making critical decisions for broadband initiatives.
Each BroadbandFabric Data Suite comes complete with Broadband Serviceable Location data at the coordinate level and tied with informative data attributes such as broadband service (technology) availability, addresses, funding eligibility, cost, demographics, and MORE to support teams throughout the lifecycle of their broadband initiatives. Especially for pivotal decisions when planning for broadband funding programs such as the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program and other funding programs.

After 20+ years of broadband experience and planning, we understand the challenges faced with limited access to accurate and granular data. Until now, broadband data to solve geographical accuracy and location count issues didn’t exist. Which led us to utilize our broadband expertise to build the BroadbandFabric Data Suites. These Data Suites were created with a simple aim – to deliver the most broadband-specific, precise, and simple data solutions to support various broadband design, deployment, and reporting challenges due to lack of reliable data.
With the BroadbandFabric data, you can build a broadband availability map, assess market opportunities, plan, design, report on network projects, and more with data made specifically to inform these broadband initiatives intelligently.
How CostQuest identifies Broadband Serviceable Locations
Broadband Serviceable Locations are residential or business locations where fixed broadband internet access service is, or can be installed. To identify these structures, see the process pictured below.
