This map depicts Census block level data on block population and available providers, including the provider name and their max download/upload speeds. The map also allows the user to filter broadband access by minimum available download/upload speeds, technology type.
Broadband coverage data is provided by Internet Service Providers and verified by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Utah Automated Geographic Reference Center
All broadband mapping data is sourced directly from a broadband provider, or from working directly with a provider.
Wireless broadband internet data is mapped using coverage area footprints derived from analyzing antennae location, signal strength and terrain. Wireline broadband internet data is mapped using provider reported availability footprints in developed areas.
Once a provider’s broadband coverage is initially mapped, data updates take several forms including GIS files, written descriptions, provider created maps as well as verbal and written discussions.
