About the BroadbandFabric StatePlan

In the broadband industry, many are facing the challenge of acquiring granular and accurate broadband data to inform their broadband deployment efforts. Which is why using our core Broadband Serviceable Location data, we created the BroadbandFabric StatePlan dataset to provide complete and accurate broadband data for intelligent policy-making and broadband program management. This data is built specifically for state broadband initiatives, complete with coordinates of the latest Broadband Serviceable Locations and layered with insightful data to drive effective and intelligent decision-making.

ACCURATE & GRANULAR BROADBAND DATA

The BroadbandFabric StatePlan dataset is generated with a specific purpose in mind, give you granular and insightful broadband data for the development of a precise state broadband map to support your State Broadband Program. Each BroadbandFabric dataset has the same base of Broadband Serviceable Locations (the geographic coordinates of all structures where a broadband connection can be installed) and can provide the level of precision needed in broadband maps to help inform project initiatives effectively.

INSIGHTFUL DATA LAYERS FROM BROADBAND EXPERTS

All Broadband Serviceable Locations in each dataset come with information per location such as Service Availability, Engineering and Construction, Costs and Economics, and Demand and Demographics data to support specific functions in your broadband deployment projects.

YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE THROUGH THE DIGITAL DIVIDE

In broadband deployment projects, it’s key to develop a geographically granular broadband map, especially when looking to understand exactly where the locations needing broadband service are and which areas need it the most. Each BroadbandFabric dataset can be your guide through the Digital Divide, with precise coordinates of Broadband Serviceable Locations and insightful information per location such as service availability data to help you analyze your areas of interest all-in-one view.

What can I use BroadbandFabric StatePlan data for?

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.

Data you can add on

Business Case data

  • This data provides you with a full Business Case for a custom geographic area.
  • Users indicate their defined service area, and we will deliver custom Business Case data for that area.
  • The full Business Case includes the cost to maintain the business over time, plus an estimate of demand and revenue.
  • The custom Business Case also provides you with the Net Present Value look of the potential service area. With this information you can understand the full market opportunity for deploying a typical Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) network buildout to a defined service area and identify where funding is most required.

Fiber network design from our CQA Autodesign model

  • This data includes fiber routes to Broadband Serviceable Locations (demand) and logical placements of equipment along the way.
  • We also will provide you an efficient clustering and a full GIS design output ready for approval from a Professional Engineer.
Broadband data built by broadband experts

Built by broadband experts with over 20+ years of experience in the communications industry, we’ve created data that is broadband-specific, accurate at the coordinate level, and works easily with your data. CostQuest has supplied broadband data to hundreds of customers, helping them achieve critical objectives and tackle challenges in network deployment projects.

CostQuest was awarded the FCC’s 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 data will be vital to closing the Digital Divide.

How we identify Broadband Serviceable Locations

Broadband Serviceable Locations are the geographic coordinates of all structures where a broadband connection can be installed.
