Broadband Reports

Square

The FCC Broadband Data Collection (BDC), and the associated National Broadband Map, provides fundamental information about the internet services available to individual locations. This data is updated periodically and represents the most detailed compilation of broadband data collected by the FCC. The BDC captures the information of all service providers per location, data speed, and other data reflecting the availability and quality of broadband service. The BDC is used by NTIA to identify unserved and underserved locations and their eligibility for the federal Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) grant funding.

The image depicts three sample maps that show examples of different elements reported in Televate's Broadband Reports. All three maps are based on Federal Communications Commission Broadband Data Collection National Broadband Map data from December 2023, last updated on May 28, 2024. All of the maps are color-coded to show the data value per area.

The first map is labeled "Marion County, Florida: Percent of BEAD Fundable Locations." It is color-coded by census block, using a red-to-green scale where red indicates a smaller percentage of BEAD fundable locations, and green indicates a higher percentage of BEAD fundable locations.

The second map is labeled "Hamilton County, Ohio: Percent Locations with 100/20+ Mbps Competition." It is color-coded by census block, using a red-to-green scale where red indicates a smaller percentage of locations with internet service provider competition at the designated speed level, and green indicates a higher percentage of locations with internet service provider competition at the designated speed level.

The third map is labeled "State of Wisconsin: Technology With The Best Speeds At The Most Locations." This map is color-coded by county. The technology categories shown are "Cable," "Fiber," "DSL," and "Licensed Fixed Wireless."

Televate’s Broadband Reports provide a convenient, informative, and cost-effective means to conduct an assessment of broadband service, technology, and competitive factors to guide your analysis and BEAD program decisions. Our custom software automatically processes dozens of BDC data elements, including the number of internet service providers (ISP) and the type of competition at individual locations, the prevailing technology in an area, and technology deployment tracking, in addition to categorizing service at the federal designated data throughput levels. Our BDC analysis and reporting approach provides consistent perspectives on service at the grid, census block, county, state, and nationwide levels.

Broadband Reports are provided as standard county or state reports that summarize service using dozens of key service indicators for each geography. The reports include maps at the census block level (for county reports), and the county level (for state reports) reports for many of these indicators. Our reports also shed light on changes over time starting from the initial June 2022 service status to the most recent version available from the FCC along some of the most critical service elements such as the change in served locations, serviceable locations, and fiber locations.

Televate also offers customized studies that can answer service and competition questions of governments and ISPs alike. Because we have captured and processed millions of BDC data records, our customized BDC reports can be generated quickly and provide an ideal source of location-centric broadband data from which to make informed decisions. Customers can also order optional GIS data for additional analysis and mapping.
