Project Goal

The National Broadband Availability Map (NBAM) is a GIS platform used to visualize and analyze federal, state, and commercial broadband data sets. This includes data from the FCC, U.S. Census Bureau, Universal Service Administrative Company, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Department of the Treasury, Ookla, Measurement Lab, BroadbandNow, White Star and the state governments. Users, including administrators from 36 participating states and four federal agencies, access the NBAM mapping platform and use these data resources to better inform broadband projects and funding decisions in their states.
