Sbi form 477 presentation

  1. 1. FCC Form 477 Data Program: The Commission's June 27 Modernization Order Webinar for SBI Participants by the FCC' s Wireline Competition Bureau and Wireless Telecommunications Bureau July 11, 2013
  2. 2. Thank you! "NTIA, in partnership with the states, has been collecting and populating the National Broadband Map for the past 3 years, and I thank and applaud them for their tireless work in doing so." -- Statement of Acting Chairwoman Mignon L. Clyburn, FCC, June 27, 2013 2
  3. 3. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data What is FCC Form 477? Since 2000, the FCC has collected data on broadband and mobile and fixed telephony through its Form 477. Filing Form 477 is mandatory for all facilities-based providers of broadband and mobile voice services, and for all providers of fixed voice and interconnected VoIP services. •Form 477 must be filed twice a year: - March 1 (reflecting data as of the preceding December 31) - September 1 (reflecting data as of the preceding June 30) •Providers file their data directly with the FCC via our electronic filing system. 'Until now, Form 477 has focused on broadband subscriptions, not broadband deployment. 'General Form 477 resources are available at http://www.fcc.gov/forms and our filers' resources page is http://transition.fcc.gov/form477. 3
  4. 4. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data What happened in June? To ensure continuity in the collection of broadband deployment data as funding for the SBI program nears expiration, on June 27 the FCC Commissioners voted to add a deployment collection to our existing Form 477. - The Commissioners also voted for other changes (e.g. changes to subscription data), but we are focusing here on broadband deployment. - Although we are focusing on broadband deployment, we note that the Commission also voted to continue the existing collection of mobile broadband availability data at the census tract level. Thus we will have both "deployment" and availability for mobile broadband. •The full text of the FCCs Order is available at http://www.fcc.gov/document/modernizing-fcc-form-477-data-program. 4
  5. 5. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data What broadband deployment data will Form 477 collect? •The FCC's broadband collection is divided into two main categories (similar to SBI): - Fixed broadband, including: • Telco • Cable • Satellite • Fixed wireless - Mobile wireless broadband 5
  6. 6. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data Fixed Broadband Collection Census block level No change Address- and/or street-segment data in large blocks Speed tiers Does not routinely separate residential and non-residential State-by-state collection Not required - census block reporting uniformly Report maximum advertised speed for each technology used in each census block Distinguish where appropriate Single, national filing 6
  7. 7. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data Mobile Broadband Collection 1Ii'JtTii I.]luLPt Submit shapefiles (or polygons in a file Collect shapefiles (perhaps geodatabase) geodatabase, TBD) Distinguish shapefiles (e.g., coverage) by provider, maximum advertised speed, and spectrum band Associate shapefiles with a spectrum band No "technology deployed" distinction State-by-state collection Distinguish polygons by minimum advertised speed Distinguish polygons by spectrum band (e.g., 700 MHz, Cellular, AWS, PCS, BRS/EBS) Distinguish polygons by technology deployed (e.g., EV-DO, WCDMA, HSPA+, LTE, WiMAX) Single, national filing Bottom line: Separate polygon for each unique combination of coverage area, speed, spectrum band, and technology 7
  8. 8. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data Other changes to Form 477? • Eliminate speed tiers from the subscription collection • Collect fixed voice and interconnected VoIP subscription data by census tract (rather than collecting by state with a list of zip codes that have subscribers) - Continue to collect mobile voice and mobile broadband subscription data at the state level • Emergency contact information • Company identification information • Staff to develop a software-based solution to allow collection of more granular data in the future without increasing provider burdens. 8
  9. 9. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data What is the timeline for implementation? •Before providers are required to make their first Form 477 deployment filings, the FCC must: - develop secure and robust IT - prepare detailed filing instructions - obtain Paperwork Reduction Act approval - develop training materials and work with the 4,000+ filers to help them adjust to the changes. •Goal: providers including deployment data in their September 1, 2014 filing (data as of June 30, 2014). But... •FCC will likely rely on SB! data for the "as of "June 30, 2014 collection. "[T]he Commission is likely to rely heavily on SBI data collected in the overlap collection, as the SBI collection is more settled and providers may still be adjusting to the revisions to Form 477." -FCC Form 477 Order, 1] 25. 9
  10. 10. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data What is the timeline for collection? Dates are approximate 477 File "as of" File "as of" File "as of" June2014 December June2015 2014 File "as of" December 2015 10 SBI File "as of" File "as of" File "as of" June 2013 December June 2014 2013
  11. 11. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data Will deployment data still be publicly available? •YES. 'Deployment data will be publicly available to the same extent that SBI data are available. 'Mobile broadband providers may request confidential treatment of spectrum and speed parameters that are used for internal network planning purposes. Note: The FCC generally does not publish disaggregated subscription data. We do share disaggregated data with state public utility commissions that are able to afford confidential treatment to the data, and we also share more aggregated data with Eligible Entities. No changes are imminent. The FCC directed the staff to develop ways to allow greater public access to disaggregated subscription data while taking into account issues of competitive sensitivity. :ii
  12. 12. Transitioning the Collection of Broadband Deployment Data Will the FCC and providers work with the states? •YES, and YES. "We.. . direct the Wireline Competition Bureau to explore ways in which we might use the states' expertise to strengthen our own collection of broadband deployment data." "[T]he states have gained valuable experience with the collection of broadband deployment data . . . . We encourage providers to continue to work with states on broadband issues." - FCC Form 477 Order, ] 31. 12
