FCC’s Broadband Data Collection

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is working to fully implement its Broadband Data Collection program. Once complete, the FCC’s broadband maps will show – on a house-by-house, location-by-location basis – where broadband internet access service is available. The FCC will standardize location data through broadband serviceable location fabric, a common dataset of all structures in the United States where mass-market, fixed broadband internet access service can be installed. Estimated completion: 2022.

The BroadbandUSA program, housed within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), serves state, local, and tribal governments, industry, and nonprofits that seek to expand broadband connectivity and promote digital inclusion.
