WASHINGTON, December 14, 2009 - Broadband Census Data announced the availability of highly granular Census block mapping services to state recipients of broadband mapping grants.
BroadbandCensus.com provides the information necessary for states to meet grant obligations under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It does this by identifying:
- internet technologies;
- advertised speeds;
- prices; and
- the presence or absence of broadband within each Census block.
Using BroadbandCensus.com, a state can fully map the broadband footprint of its carriers within 42 days for a fraction of the budget allocated by the Recovery Act.
And the cost is less than what a state might otherwise expect for a product of this caliber.
BroadbandCensus.com builds its broadband maps by blending multiple data sets of publicly-available information.
These sources include:
- Wireline footprints;
- Radio-frequency engineering maps;
- Publicly-available carrier data;
- Survey-grade research; and
- Crowdsourced data.
The data underlying BroadbandCensus.com is verifiable, publicly available, and granular to the Census block level.
BroadbandCensus.com can also go beyond the Census block level and offer consumer broadband data at the rooftop level. This survey-grade information is no more than six months old.
Unlike compiled consumer data built for direct marketing, the BroadbandCensus.com suite of services makes use of active household demographic data.
Working in collaboration with Brian Webster Consulting, Broadband Census Data offers states and other parties the solution they need to meet their broadband mapping requirements. States need to meet these in order to obtain ARRA grants.
For your broadband mapping solution, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call Robert Sepe, Mapping Services, Broadband Census Data, at 919-467-5392.
