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.

How Broadband Wireless Can Be Utilized

The information collected in this data set can be used in conjunction with a street database 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 information in this wireless broadband data set allow for a comprehensive understanding of a carrier’s infrastructure attributes and specific geographic coverage areas.
