On March 4, 2022, the Broadband Data Task Force (“Task Force”) and Office of Economics and Analytics (“OEA”) released a Public Notice announcing today’s release of the data specifications for the biannual submission of subscription, availability, and supporting data for the Broadband Data Collection (“BDC”). The specifications are available on the FCC’s Broadband Data Collection website at https://www.fcc.gov/BroadbandData/filers.
The specifications provide guidance to filers on how to prepare and format availability and other, related data for submission into the BDC system. The specifications also include example data entries and guidance on whether the data should be submitted by file upload or web form. Filer data must match the specifications in order to be accepted by the BDC system and the FCC encourages the broadband service providers, as well as others seeking to submit data, to review the specifications and align their filings prior to the opening of the window on June 30, 2022, so they may submit their data promptly when the window opens.
