What are Fiber Lit Buildings?
Fiber lit buildings provide bandwidth capacity for end-user applications. This data displays service providers who have a fiber presence or optical switches connected to a fiber loop inside a building.
GeoTel’s Fiber Lit Buildings or FLB data set shows on-net buildings and near-net buildings. Attributes included in our fiber lit building data includes identification of the fiber service provider name, type of fiber presence (on net or near net), and latitude and longitude coordinates. The FLBs data set delivers over approximately 13,255,000 fiber lit buildings in the United States.
The data is geocoded to digital street databases and is viewed as a layer in a geographic information system. From this layer, you will know which telecommunications provider is located in the selected building.
Companies use this data for making site location decisions. Many other GIS telecommunications products and data layers can be added to further enhance analysis such as combining with fiber routes and business location data. The FLBs data set allows service providers to create actionable sales leads targeting specific competitor locations.
This data set includes location data for carriers with a fiber presence inside a building. Additionally, a link ID is provided for reporting and database development. Sources for development of this data set includes obtaining information from carriers directly, internet research, and other third-party sources.
