Data Designed for Better Broadband Planning 

Data provided in whichever file formats are easiest for your team, 
at no extra charge.

Our focus is providing broadband serviceable locations, with rooftop lat/lon coordinates and confident addresses that you can use.

CAF + RDOF Ready

Locations are categorized by program eligibility and can accelerate your build-out obligation planning or subsequent filings.

HOW IT WORKS

Locate potential demand & RDOF locations in three steps

Pick any U.S. County

CQA securely cleans and 

delivers location data

CQA location data is ready

for any GIS system

Once you've identified which areas you're interested in, simply provide us with the FIPS code(s), any customer addresses to be analyzed, and we'll get to work.

We can update lat/lon coordinates for your existing customers, provide locations you may be missing, or simply show you serviceable locations in and around RDOF eligible areas.

We'll deliver files via a secure portal (these files are big!), give you a crash course on what you're getting, and you'll be good to go.

Create accurate costs estimates to deploy and service take rates with better counts and locations.  

Enhance Demand Planning

Fabric Data Includes:

The BroadbandFabric is the first comprehensive data set of broadband serviceable structures, with data available in all 50 states. Over 860M data points are analyzed with the end goal of selecting only the primary homes and businesses in the U.S. that are serviceable for broadband.

Data is available as low as the county level, includes RDOF-eligible locations, and can be exported into any major GIS file format for easy importing.  

How We Got Started

How Does the Fabric Look in a GIS?

Below is a sample image of a county in California, once the Fabric data is loaded into your GIS, you can then layer in what we call "active Fabric points." Each Fabric point indicates a structure capable of receiving broadband service, along with land use, parcel, footprint, and tax assessor information for each point.

 Toggle left & right on the map below, to see how the BroadbandFabric lights up your GIS map with "active Fabric points." For the purpose of this example we are just showing you the active Fabric points, not all the information that comes with each point.

The Broadband Mapping Initiative

While national estimates of the broadband gap have been available through the FCC broadband reporting,  the information reported hasn't been at the granular level needed to identify where broadband is lacking. In 2019, CQA managed a pilot in Missouri and Virginia to demonstrate the feasibility of identifying the precise number and location of every structure in the states that are available for broadband access. With the combination of industry expertise and help from trade associations and select providers, CQA created the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric, to make it possible to precisely map where broadband is available and where it isn't. It was discovered in the Pilot that as many as 38% of additional rural locations are unserved in census blocks that would have been filed as served in today's FCC Form 477 reporting approach. Therefore exemplifying the need for granular data in broadband maps, a need the BroadbandFabric can now fill. 

Before

Pictured here are 10 Census Blocks in MO that would be identified as SERVED in today's Form 477.  We call this the "one-served, all-served" reporting, which does not capture the locations within the census blocks, whether served or unserved. 

Now with the polygon approach for Form 477, you can now see (pictured below) areas that are served based on geocoded addresses of served locations. 

During

After

When Pilot Provider data, filed in the HUBB, was matched to the Fabric, it was clear that additional locations existed. Pictured here, active Fabric points in green are those served by providers, while active Fabric points in red are not. This demonstrates how the Fabric can serve as the foundation for a more granular broadband map, creating a clearer picture of the served and unserved when combined with provider data.

After

However when the Form 477 polygons were compared to the Fabric points, it was clear the polygons based on poor geocoded information will miss locations. Displayed below, you can see active Fabric points in green and red, showing more locations that are served and unserved that Form 477 missed.
