The FCC’s Broadband Data Task Force (Task Force) held this online Technical Assistance Workshop to assist state, local, and Tribal governments, service providers, and other entities who plan to file bulk challenges to data in the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric (Fabric), which serves as the foundation for the Broadband Data Collection (BDC) fixed availability maps. The workshop reviewed how to open and work with the Fabric dataset and also demonstrated possible approaches to identifying missing or mislabeled locations in the Fabric data set.
Additional technical assistance resources related to the bulk Fabric challenge process, including links to a comprehensive webinar, video tutorials, help articles, data specifications, and a BDC system user guide are also available at www.fcc.gov/BroadbandData/FabricHelp. Requests for technical support may also be submitted using the “Get Help” link available on that page.
