The Wireline Competition Bureau (“Bureau”) announced the release of updated data on fixed broadband deployment as of June 30, 2016. This data was collected through FCC From 477, and is available on the “Federal Communications Commission’s (“FCC’s” or the “Commission’s”) Broadband Deployment Data- FCC Form 477″ webpage: www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/broadband-deployment-data-fcc-form-477. The June 30, 2016 version includes any revisions made by filers before May 16, 2017; and therefore updates the fixed broadband deployment data released in connection with the report Internet Access Services: Status as of June 30, 2016, released in April. Coverage area shapeflies showing mobile broadband network deployment as of June 30, 2016 will be available at a later date.
Users can download data on census blocks where providers report offering fixed broadband services to at least part of the block. These data tables also indicate the technology used to offer the service and maximum advertised download/upload speeds for both consumer and business services. The data is available in a comma separated value (“CSV”) format for both the entire United States and for individual states.
A description of the fields in the fixed broadband deployment data and an explanation of the modifications to the data made prior to its release are available on the “Explanations of the Broadband Deployment Data” webpage at http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/explanation-broadband-deployment-data.
Addition information on Form 477 is available on the Form 477 Resources for Filers webpage at http://www.fcc.gov/form477.
