On December 27, 2022, the Broadband Data Task Force released a Public Notice announcing the second Broadband Data Collection filing window for broadband availability and other data as of December 31, 2022 will open on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Starting on January 3, 2023, facilities-based broadband service providers may begin to file in the BDC system data that reflects where they made mass-market broadband internet access service available as of December 31, 2022. Such data must be submitted no later than March 1, 2023. Filers should submit their data in the BDC system at https://bdc.fcc.gov/bdc.
Submissions during this window will utilize an updated Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric and providers who are already licensees of the Fabric will receive an email from CostQuest providing them with access to the new Fabric data on a rolling basis as the opening of the filing window approaches. The FCC encourages filers to submit their data as early as possible in the filing window to ensure they are able to make necessary corrections in advance of the March 1, 2023 deadline. Failure to timely file required data may lead to enforcement action and/or penalties.
