Broadband Wireless

The wireless broadband GIS data set shows the attributes and coverage areas of facility based wireless broadband providers including the range of spectrum used to deliver services. This includes cellular carriers and fixed wireless broadband providers (WISP’s). Relevant data of a wireless carrier’s broadband network is collected and digitized to a GIS format, allowing for the evaluation of several attributes and coverage areas. This data also provides a clear look at download and uploads speeds of each carrier. The information collected in this data set can be used in conjunction with street data base or aerial imagery to paint an overview of what a broadband wireless carrier offers to a consumer, based on specific relevant data. The structure and properties of this wireless broadband data set allows for a comprehensive understanding of a Carrier’s infrastructure attributes and specific geographic coverage areas.
