Who Files What?
- All facilities-based broadband providers are required to file data with the FCC twice a year (Form 477) on where they offer Internet access service at speeds exceeding 200 kbps in at least one direction.
- Fixed providers file lists of census blocks in which they can or do offer service to at least one location, with additional information about the service.*
- Mobile providers file maps of their coverage areas for each broadband technology (e.g., EV-DO, HSPA, LTE). See Mobile Deployment Data.

*Note: A provider that reports deployment of a particular technology and bandwidth in a census block may not necessarily offer that service everywhere in the block. Accordingly, a list of providers deployed in a census block does not necessarily reflect the number of choices available to any particular household or business location in that block, and the number of such providers in the census block does not purport to measure competition.
