Internet Access Services: Status as of June 30, 2013

Introduction. This report summarizes information about Internet access connections over 200 kilobits

per second (kbps) in at least one direction in service in the United States on June 30, 2013, as collected by

FCC Form 477. Form 477 gathers standardized information about subscribership to Internet access

services in the fifty states, District of Columbia, and inhabited insular areas (American Samoa, Guam,

Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands). The information is reported by

telephone companies, cable system operators, terrestrial wireless service providers, satellite service

providers, and other facilities-based providers of advanced telecommunications capability.1 This is the

tenth report to include details about subscribership differences among census tracts and counties, as well

as subscribership differences among the states.2

Notable developments between June 2012 and June 2013 include:

Internet connections overall are growing. The number of connections over 200 kbps in at least

one direction increased by 13% year-over-year to 276 million.

In June 2013, there were 70 million fixed and 93 million mobile connections with download

speeds at or above 3 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds at or above 768 kbps as

compared to 57 million fixed and 43 million mobile connections a year earlier. Figure 1

illustrates the trend in connections speeds from June 2010 through June 2013, and Figure 2

presents a side-by-side comparison of fixed and mobile connection speeds in June 2013.3

1 See the Technical Notes and the Glossary that appear at the end of this report for more-detailed information about

the Form 477 data collection and the meaning of terms used in this report.

Readers should note two key aspects of the Form 477 data. First, if service connections of different speeds are

available to a particular consumer for purchase – from one or more suppliers – then only the purchased connection

is counted by Form 477. Second, the reported connection speed is typically the advertised speed of the purchased

service, and it is possible that the purchased service will not operate at its advertised speed at all times. The

Commission has sponsored tests of actual consumer broadband speeds. See, e.g., Federal Communications

Commission, Office of Engineering and Technology and Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, 2014

Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report (June 2014), available athttp://www.fcc.gov/measuring-broadband-america"> www.fcc.gov/measuring-

http://www.fcc.gov/measuring-broadband-america">broadband-america.

2 Census tract-level data were first collected for December 2008. For an overview of program history, see High-

Speed Services for Internet Access: Status as of December 31, 2008 (February 2010) (December 2008 High-Speed

Report) at pp. 1-4, available athttp://transition.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html"> www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html. Readers who are interested in historical trends in

the Form 477 data should note the changes in reporting requirements that were effective in 2008 and earlier, in 2005.

3 Reporting entities place connections into speed tiers defined by predetermined ranges of upload and download

speeds. Note that the Commission has decided to implement a different approach starting with data as of June 30,

2014. For each fixed product subscribed to in a census tract, the provider will report connections by the maximum

advertised upload and download speeds of the product in that census tract. For each mobile product subscribed to in

a state, the provider will report connections by the minimum advertised upload and download speeds of the product

in that state. As the Commission explained, while the maximum advertised speed is a reasonably reliable indicator

of the speed of fixed service that subscribers receive, a wireless service provider’s targeted minimum data speed in a

market typically is a primary driver of the wireless network design that determines the market coverage boundaries.

See Modernizing the FCC Form 477 Data Program, WC Docket No. 11-10, Report and Order, 28 FCC Rcd 9887,

9908-09, 9915, paras. 42 n.138, 62 (2013) (June 2013 Form 477 Modernization Order).

Connections include both residential and business connections. In June 2013, total connections were reported as 31%

residential fixed connections, 3% business fixed connections, 52% mobile connections to non-business subscribers, and 14%

mobile connections to business subscribers.

The number of connections with downstream speeds of at least 10 Mbps increased by 118% over

June 2012, to 103 million connections.4

Growth is particularly high in mobile Internet subscriptions. The number of mobile subscriptions

with speeds over 200 kbps in at least one direction grew to 181 million – up 18% from June 2012.

The number of fixed-location connections at speeds over 200 kbps in at least one direction

increased by 5% year-over-year to 94 million.

Connection speeds in detail. The Form 477 program categorizes reportable connections into 72 speed

tiers defined by eight ranges of downstream and nine ranges of upstream speed. In this overview

discussion, we organize the extensive information collected for June 2013 into three groups of

downstream speeds and three groups of upstream speeds. We do this separately for fixed-location

connections and for mobile connections. As in previous reports, we use the Form 477 speed tier

breakpoints of 3 Mbps and 6 Mbps to organize the information about downstream speeds, and we use the

Form 477 speed tier breakpoints of 768 kbps and 1.5 Mbps to organize the information about upstream

speeds.5

Fixed connections – downstream speeds. Figure 3(a) illustrates how the 94 million fixed

connections reported for June 2013 were distributed across the three ranges of downstream speed defined

by breakpoints at 3 Mbps and at 6 Mbps.

2013), available athttp://www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html"> www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html.

5 Our narrative discussion of the speeds of fixed connections is summarized more concisely in Chart 2, at p. 19, and

our narrative discussion of the speeds of mobile connections is summarized more concisely in Chart 5, at p. 22.

The Commission benchmarked broadband as a transmission service that enables an end user actually to download

Internet content at 4 Mbps and to upload Internet content at 1 Mbps over the service provider’s network. That

benchmark does not exactly match any Form 477 speed tier, and the Commission decided to evaluate the evidence

of broadband availability using the Form 477-defined breakpoints of 3 Mbps downstream and 768 kbps upstream to

proxy the speed benchmark of 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream. See Inquiry Concerning the Deployment

of Advanced Telecommunications Capability to All Americans in a Reasonable and Timely Fashion, and Possible

Steps to Accelerate Such Deployment Pursuant to Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Amended by

the Broadband Data Improvement Act, GN Docket Nos. 09-137, 09-51, Report, 25 FCC Rcd 95560, 9563, 9568,

Providers by census tract by connection speed. In Figure 5(a), we estimate the percentages of

households located in census tracts where zero, one, two, or three or more providers reported residential

fixed-location connections of several different speeds in June 2013. In doing so, however, we emphasize

that a provider that reports residential fixed-location connections of a particular speed in a particular

census tract may not necessarily offer service at that speed everywhere in the census tract. Accordingly,

the number of providers shown in Figure 5(a) does not necessarily reflect the number of choices available

to a particular household, and does not purport to measure competition. We note that the Commission has

adopted changes to Form 477 that will enable a more precise analysis in future.10

10 The Commission anticipates adding deployment information to Form 477 starting with data as of June 30, 2014,

and the information about fixed broadband deployment will be reported by census block. (There are approximately

11 million census blocks and approximately 74,000 census tracts, although not all contain households.) See June

2013 Form 477 Modernization Order, 28 FCC Rcd at 9902-05, paras. 32-35.

In Figure 5(b), we estimate the percentages of households in census tracts where providers reported

purchased residential fixed-location connections of different speeds or reported operating a mobile

wireless network capable of sending or receiving data at the indicated speeds. Again, we emphasize that

such providers may not necessarily offer services at those speeds everywhere in the census tract, and that

these data do not necessarily reflect competition.

Internet access adoption. The Commission has systematically collected, compiled, and published data

about the adoption of fixed-location Internet access connections faster than 200 kbps in at least one

direction for more than a decade. Figure 6 illustrates the adoption of fixed-location Internet access

connections (that is, all reportable connections over 200 kbps in at least one direction except mobile

wireless connections) since 1999.11

Residential Fixed Connections (left axis)

Total Fixed Connections (left axis)

Residential Fixed Connections per 100 Households (right axis)

Total Fixed Connections per 100 Population (right axis)

Between June 2003 and June 2013, total (business and residential) reportable fixed-location

connections grew from 23 million connections to 94 million connections – at a compound annual

growth rate of 15% per year.12

Over the same ten-year period, residential fixed-location connections grew from 21 million

connections to 86 million connections – also at a compound annual growth rate of 15% per year.

11 For data through December 2004, only those providers with at least 250 connections in a state were required to

report. Historical fixed-location connection counts not included in this report may be found in June 2008 High-

Speed Report at Tables 1 and 3, available in Excel format athttp://transition.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html"> www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html.

12 The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is a smoothed rate of growth calculated in three steps. First, divide

the ending (June 2013) value by the beginning (June 2003) value. Second, raise the result of that division to a power

equal to one divided by the number of years in the period (in this case, 10 years, so the power is 1/10). Third,

subtract the number one from the result of the second step.

Between June 2003 and June 2013, household adoption – which we track in Figure 6 by

comparing the number of residential fixed-location connections over 200 kbps in at least one

direction to the number of households – increased from 18 connections per 100 households to 69

connections per 100 households.13

Other report highlights.

Residential subscribership

Residential fixed-location Internet access connections over 200 kbps in at least one direction

increased by 4% between June 2012 and June 2013, to 86 million. See Table 3.

Reported residential mobile wireless service subscribers with mobile devices and data plans for

full Internet access increased by 24%, to 142 million, between June 2012 and June 2013. See

Table 3.

The reported data show a 30% annual increase in the number of residential fixed-location

connections that are at least 6 Mbps downstream and 1.5 Mbps upstream (from 34.5 million in

June 2012 to 45 million in June 2013) and a 31% annual increase in the number of connections

that are at least 10 Mbps downstream and 1.5 Mbps upstream (from 34.1 million in June 2012 to

44.8 million in June 2013).14 See Chart 12.

13 In Figure 6, we calculated residential fixed connections per 100 households using, in the denominator, U.S.

household estimates from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS) for July of each year and, for

Puerto Rico and the other inhabited island areas, Census 2010 households for 2010 and later years and Census 2000

households for the earlier years. (The CPS also estimates U.S. households for March and November of each year.)

Ratios calculated for different dates or by using alternative household estimates will differ somewhat from the ratios

reported in Figure 6.

We also show total (including business as well as residential) fixed-location connections per 100 population in

Figure 6, which we calculated using U.S. Census Bureau population estimates for the United States and Puerto Rico

– which are as of July 1 each year – and, for the remaining inhabited island areas, Census 2010 population for 2010

and later years and Census 2000 population for the earlier years. This statistic, which is routinely reported by the

Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), incorporates connections to business locations

into a comparison to persons. A more accurately measured indicator of this type would include only connections to

residential locations, but OECD does not have comprehensive, consistent information about residential connections

in the member countries. (We note that the ratio of accurately measured residential fixed-location connections to

population has a maximum value for any given country and point in time – the value when every household is

connected – if we assume that no household would have more than one fixed connection to its premises. For the

United States in June 2013, for example, the maximum value would be 39 because there were about 125 million

households in the United States and inhabited insular areas and a population of about 320 million according to the

sources used for Figure 6.)

14 These increases are largely due to a change in upstream-speed reporting by a single aDSL services provider.

Internet Access Services: Status as of June 30, 2013 12

image15-00.jpg612x792

Household adoption of faster speeds

As a national average in June 2013, there were 54 residential fixed-location connections per 100

households for connections with speeds that were reported to be at least 3 Mbps downstream and

768 kbps upstream.15 See Table 13.

Census tract and county shares of households with reportable connections

We estimate the share of households with fixed-location Internet access connections over 200

kbps in at least one direction in individual census tracts and counties as of June 30, 2013. We

continue to observe substantial variation among these estimates. See Charts 15 and 16.

For both census tracts and counties, we continue to find estimates above 100% for the share of

households with reportable fixed-location Internet access connections. While this is likely to

occur more frequently in areas where the number of housing units is substantially greater than the

number of households, such as resort areas and beach communities, these results suggest that

some filers are not accurately assigning customer connections to census tracts, and anecdotal

evidence supports that conclusion.16

Household adoption rates and subscribership demographics

The report includes charts that illustrate correlations between household subscribership, or

adoption, rates and demographic measures. We update charts based on income, household

density, education, age, and race. The data indicate that some demographic variables are

correlated with the adoption of Internet access service. See Charts 17-29.

Maps of providers by census tract

Maps depict the number of providers of reportable connections by census tract: (1) providers of

total (combined residential and business) reportable fixed-location connections, (2) providers of

residential reportable fixed-location connections, (3) providers of residential fixed-location

connections at least 3 Mbps downstream and 768 kbps upstream, and (4) providers making

reportable mobile wireless service available.17

15 Increases over time in the ratio of residential fixed-location connections to households indicate that increasing

shares of households are connected at home. The ratio is somewhat different from the “take rate” of offered service

(which may also be called an “adoption rate”) because, as discussed in connection with Figure 5(a), some

households may be located in areas where no fixed-location service is offered. These methodological differences

are discussed in greater detail in Inquiry Concerning the Deployment of Advanced Telecommunications Capability

to All Americans in a Reasonable and Timely Fashion, and Possible Steps to Accelerate Such Deployment Pursuant

to Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Amended by the Broadband Data Improvement Act, GN

Docket No.11-121, Eighth Broadband Progress Report, 27 FCC Rcd 10342, 10386, para. 94 (2012).

16 For example, while contacting Form 477 filers with questions about reported data, FCC staff continue to find

situations in which all connections reported for a county have been assigned to a single, anomalous census tract.

17 As discussed in the Technical Notes, a mobile wireless provider should only report service availability in census

tracts where the provider operates a network capable of sending or receiving data at speeds above 200 kbps.

Remainder of the report. The remainder of the report consists of tables, charts, and maps that highlight

different aspects of Internet access service subscriptions. This information is organized into four sections,

as described below. As always, publicly accessible data that are too voluminous to include in this report

are available online at file:/fccnet/data/Bureaus-Offices/WCB/IATD/Reports/Internet_access/June11data/www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html">www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html.

Detailed Summary Statistics: The Nation. Tables 1-12 and Charts 1-14 focus in order on:

number of connections, speed of connections, technology of connections, and number of

providers.

Detailed Summary Statistics: The States. Tables 13-21 present comparable information for the

individual states and our estimates of the shares of households that are connected at different

speeds.

Detailed Summary Statistics: Counties and Census Tracts. Charts 15-16 and Tables 22-26

present information about differences among counties and census tracts. This section concludes

with two maps that illustrate differences among census tracts in the estimated share of connected

households and the four maps (discussed above) that illustrate providers by census tract.

Detailed Correlation Results: Demographic Measures. Charts 17-29 present details of the

correlations observed between the estimated share of connected households and demographic

measures.
