Accurate locations are critical for buildout requirements

Every dataset includes the coordinates and addresses for serviceable structures in a given geography. Any data you license from CQA is easily imported into your GIS software.

Know which locations you need to build to

When evaluating RDOF eligible areas, you’re able to download location counts and reserve amounts per census block group, and even the precise census blocks that are eligible. However, the geographic coordinates of those locations are not included, leaving it up to bidders to determine which buildings in eligible areas are, in fact, serviceable locations with potential customers. BroadbandFabric Location Data speeds up RDOF auction preparation by providing bidders with latitude/longitude coordinates and addresses for serviceable structures in and around RDOF eligible census blocks. Spend your time modeling the best areas for you to bid in, not identifying locations.

Your engineers will do wonders with the ground truth

Whether you design your networks in-house or work with valued partners, precise location data gets you to an accurate design faster. The RDOF auction is rapidly approaching and having solid designs is crucial to creating cost models that are as close to reality as possible. Incorporating BroadbandFabric Location Data will save precious time dropping pins, cleaning up false positives, and lead to cost models that are more representative of what you’ll actually build.

Making the ‘how much’ question easier

Cost modeling for broadband networks is made more accurate when it’s based on an actual network design. For fiber especially, component costs and capacity planning are greatly influenced by demand density and the last-mile customer locations. Inaccuracies in the home location or terminal location can have a substantial impact on drop cost estimates and faulty capital cost assumptions.

Accelerate regulatory filings

Whether designing a network for the Long Form, including locations in a HUBB filing, or working through the eventual coverage polygon requirements, rely on accurate location data to speed up the process. With only serviceable structures identified, including lat/lon coordinates and addresses, you’ll have what you need to breeze through compliance.
