CostQuest Associates (CQA) has long led the broadband industry in the knowledge of costs, network modeling, economics, data science, and regulation. Core to CostQuest’s roots, our consulting services team builds custom cost, business case, service maps, and valuation models to detail the economics of broadband infrastructure. With technology-specific experts in fiber, fixed wireless, and mobility, as well as ASA appraisers on staff, we offer end-to-end solutions that have stood up to the highest levels of scrutiny. Our team is devoted to tackling complex broadband problems to develop best-in-class solutions to help teams make the most effective decisions about broadband infrastructure.
At the core of everything we do, is an understanding of networks. We incorporate engineering principles when building business cases, cost models, and conducting service mapping. The result is network planning output that accounts for the technical and financial nuances of your unique business.
Governmental Broadband Advisory
Building and maintaining a successful broadband funding program requires a granular understanding of the served and unserved and, ultimately, the investment needed to reach those unserved. CQA builds broadband maps, cost models, and provides advisory services for funding program design. We’d happily share detail on our efforts at the state, regional, and national levels.
Valuation & Appraisal
Our team of ASA appraisers and telecommunications experts partner with your team from appraisal to appeal to testimony. Together, we create property valuations based on independent and defensible models to help achieve fair appraised values for your property.
Address Matching & Georeferencing
CostQuest can match your service (provisioning) addresses to Broadband Serviceable Locations (BSLs). Our matching processes can be used in federal and state regulatory filings, and to support better billing, provisioning, service qualification, and other service provider use cases. We also support broadband providers with other location-based filings supporting High Cost Universal Broadband (HUBB) and Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) build-outs.
