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 with their broadband expansion initiatives. The BroadbandFabric Data Suites are a collection of datasets first of their kind with broadband data 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 applying for grants from federal funding programs such as the Capital Projects Fund, and the Infrastructure, Investment, and Jobs Act’s BEAD programs.

After 20+ years of broadband experience and planning, we understand the challenges faced with limited access to accurate 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 broadband-specific, accurate, and simple data solutions to support various broadband design, deployment, and reporting challenges due to lack of accurate data.
With the BroadbandFabric data, you can build a broadband availability map, assess market opportunities, plan, design, and report on network projects, with data made specifically to inform these broadband initiatives intelligently.
How we identify Broadband Serviceable Locations
Broadband Serviceable Locations are the geographic coordinates of all structures where a broadband connection can be installed.
