About the BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan

For some, acquiring granular and accurate broadband data to inform broadband deployment efforts efficiently has been a challenge. Which is why using our core Broadband Serviceable Location data, we created the BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan dataset to provide complete and accurate data for intelligent broadband network planning and design. The BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan dataset is built for broadband deployment projects, complete with coordinates of the latest Broadband Serviceable Locations that universally tie to other critical data such as broadband service availability, funding eligibility, cost to serve, demand, demographics, and MORE. This dataset provides you an array of data (true data fabric) designed for broadband maps to guide effective and intelligent decisions in your broadband deployment projects.

BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan Data Suite


BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan – kickstart your broadband deployment project with the most accurate broadband data possible. The broadband data in the BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan is based on CostQuest’s Broadband Serviceable Location data tied directly to federal broadband initiatives.

Accurate & granular broadband data

Having over 20+ years of experience in the communications industry, we’ve created data that is accurate at the coordinate level, broadband-specific, and works easily with your data. 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 inform project initiatives efficiently.

Insightful data layers from broadband experts

All Broadband Serviceable Locations in each dataset come with insightful information per location such as Service Availability, Engineering and Construction, Costs and Economics, and Demand and Demographics data to support specific functions in 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 areas of interest efficiently and intelligently.

What can I use BroadbandFabric NetworkPlan data for?

Get broadband-specific data

Each Broadband Serviceable Location we identify is a structure location needing broadband service. Our Broadband Serviceable Locations are NOT developed for insurance or real estate, they are built specifically for broadband. This data was developed by broadband experts and data scientists with deep roots in broadband economic network modeling and mapping.

Easy import & interoperability

All BroadbandFabric data sets come in a .CSV, .KMZ, or .KML file format to import into any major GIS or engineering software. Integrates easily with other data sets by using a unique identifier per location. A PlaceKey is included for universal referencing.
Address matching

See locations eligible for funding

Review locations that fall within areas covered under federal funding programs, such as CAF, RDOF, ARA, the upcoming IIJA funding, and more to leverage as capital to expand broadband services.

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.
