Memo: Broadband Map will be available Friday

November 17, 2022

The pre-production draft of the new broadband map will be available on November 18, 2022.

On November 18th, the FCC will be making available the pre-production draft broadband map (Broadband Map) depicting Broadband Serviceable Location (BSL) availability as of June 30, 2022. The availability information will reflect the maximum advertised download and upload speeds available by technology. Internet service providers submitted the BSL availability information in the Broadband Data Collection (BDC) filing that was due September 1, 2022, with data as of June 30, 2022. Generally, providers were instructed to report BSLs where the provider had previously served the location or could serve the location within 10 business days upon request.

The FCC will release the Broadband Map on its website. The website will provide the ability to download the information on the “Data Downloads” page of the Broadband Map webpage.
