FCC Fabric Location Data, Pct Meeting 25/3+ MBPS
This layer displays aggregated location based data from the FCC that’s gathered through the Broadband Data Collection program. The number of locations was derived from the number of unique location ids for each block group and aggregated up. Location ids may include multiple units which are not included in our calculations. The number of locations that meet broadband definitions are only for those locations served the required speeds by copper, cable, fiber, or licensed fixed wireless. Satellite, un-licensed fixed wireless, or ‘other’ are not inlcuded in our broadband calculations. A location is considered served by wireless alone if it meets the broadband definition (25/3+) by a wireless provider and is not served by any other technology type (not including satellite).
