High Speed Services for Internet Access (As of 06/30/08)
The FCC has collected basic service information from broadband providers on a semiannual basis since 2000. Statistics released today reflect data as of June 30, 2008, and are the last to be based on data collected under the previous Form 477 requirements. Under the previous requirements, filers were required to identify the number of subscribers they had in each state, broken down by speed tier and technology. Filers were also required to identify all Zip Codes in which they had at least one high-speed connection (defined as any connection delivering service at speeds exceeding 200 kilobits per second (kbps) in at least one direction) in service. According to the June 2008 data, there are no Zip Codes where there is not at least one such connection.
