Broadband Census Oklahoma (Sidebar)
By William G. Korver, Reporter, BroadbandCensus.com
August 6 - According to data provided by the Federal Communications Commission in its bi-annual report that was released in March 2008, Oklahoma has one or more broadband providers in every ZIP code as of June 2007.
The FCC has since increased the definition of broadband from 200 kbps to 768 kbps since the data was collected. Consequently, some of what the FCC considered to be broadband in June 2007 would no longer classified as such.
According to the June 2007 FCC report, the majority of Oklahoma ZIP codes with high-speed lines in service had either four or five broadband providers. The following is the data collected by the FCC regarding the percentage of Zip codes with high-speed lines in service in Oklahoma as of June 2007:
The initial set of data listed below concerns the amount of high-speed Oklahoma providers by technology as of June 30, 2007. The number that appears in parenthesis regards the amount of high-speed lines per technology in Oklahoma. Both set of figures are from the FCC's March 2008 report.
ADSL- 40 (301,523)
SDSL- 9 (3,109)
Traditional Wireline- 20 (4,607)
Cable Moden- 10 (347,813)
Fiber- 6 (4,241)
satellite- 1, 2 or 3 (*)
fixed wireless- 17 (3,324)
mobile wireless- 4 (*)
power line and other- 0 (0)
Total (unduplicated)- 72 (780,533)
Of the 780,533 high-speed lines in Oklahoma as of June 30, 2007, the FCC found that 681,017 were residential, while 99,516 were business high-speed lines. The overall amount of lines, therefore, has risen by almost 700,000 in six years, according to the FCC.
In June 2001, the FCC states that only 90,147 high-speed lines existed in Oklahoma.
The percentage of residential end-user premises with access to high-speed services (xDSL availability) as of June 30, 2007 was 80 percent where state ILECs (incumbant local exchange carriers) offered local telephone service, while 90 percent of residential end-user premises have high-speed Internet services available (cable modem) where cable systems provide cable television service.
Since June of 2001, the amount of ADSL high-speed lines has risen from 31,321 to 301,523 in June 2007.
*Editor's Note: The FCC states that * means data has been withheld to maintain carrier confidentiality.
