Connect America Fund-supported deployment data

Collection Method:

The information in this map comes directly from carriers, which submit broadband deployment data annually using USAC’s High Cost Universal Broadband (HUBB) portal. SAC independently verifies broadband deployment to a random sample of reported locations each year to monitor carrier compliance with CAF build-out obligations, but not all data in the map has been subject to this review.
