What We Are Working On An important initiative is underway within the District of Columbia to collect and process data related to broadband availability, access, and adoption rates. The ultimate goal of this project is to build a District-wide broadband map showing usage and access to broadband technology.
The District will create fundamental broadband datasets and an interactive method for displaying and using this data, as a participant in the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) State Broadband Data and Development Grant Program.
The data is collected by the DC GIS program and the DC Public Service Commission. The data is consolidated onto a map of the District of Columbia depicting broadband service and adoption. Additional data is gathered from broadband providers and submitted to the Federal Government’s National Broadband Map.
DC Residential Wireline Broadband Adoption Rates A series of maps show the residential wireline Broadband Adoption Rates across the District. The adoption rates are based on provider connection information filed with the FCC and census data reported at the census tract level.
