ConnectingNJ is New Jersey's State Broadband Initiative, a federally funded program awarded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) to gain better insight of broadband availability, adoption and usage.
Through the State Broadband Initiative, New Jersey is collecting data on the availability, speed, and location of broadband services to build and keep current the New Jersey Broadband Map. As part of the outreach effort, the objective of the program is to also identify barriers to broadband adoption and bringing awareness about the New Jersey Broadband Map and the effective use of broadband technology and its impact to our community and economy.

  5. 5.  NTIA’s State Broadband Initiative (SBI) combines the joint purposes of theAmerican Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Broadband DataImprovement Act, which envisioned a comprehensive program, led by stateentities or non-profit organizations, to facilitate the integration of broadband andinformation technology into state and local economies in order to improve ourlocal and national economic competitive advantage. New Jersey Office of Information Technology (NJOIT) was awarded federal funds tosupport five years of state-led efforts to collect data semiannually on theavailability, speed, and location of broadband services across the state. The first phase of the New Jersey SBI program, ConnectingNJ, includes a datacollection and mapping effort to build a state broadband map showing availabilityand speed of broadband access in the State to gain a better understanding ofbroadband utilization versus capacity. OIT has been working with a selected vendor and broadband service providers andcommunity anchor institutions (CAI’s), including education institutions, libraries,healthcare providers, government and other non-government organizations tocollect, validate, verify data on broadband services available throughout the state.5

  7. 7.  To begin realizing the benefits of the initial phase of data collection, NJ OITcreated a Broadband Map with data from approximately 30 Broadband providersand 15,000 community anchor institutions, including educational institutions,libraries, healthcare, state and local government within the State. The purpose of the Broadband Map is to support efforts to expand broadbandaccess and provide businesses and consumers with the relevant information theyneed to make decisions related to their high speed internet options. Below is the current snapshot of CAI data collected to date:7CAI Data Summary (as of 9/25/12)CAI CategoryTotal # of LocationsIdentifiedTotal # of recordswith broadband dataSchool K-12 3762 2465Libraries 460 43Medical/Healthcare 8604 5Public Safety 337 76University 159 34Other – State and Local Government 1694 1694Other – Non Government 8 8
  8. 8.  The data being gathered provides information on:◦ Where broadband service is available◦ The technology used to provide the service◦ Names of providers and the areas they service◦ Maximum advertised speeds of the service they provide◦ Locations and speeds of community anchor institutions. The State of New Jersey’s Broadband Map is refreshed and updatedevery six months and can be found at http://connectingnj.state.nj.us With a comprehensive and continually updated map, the State cancontinue building the value of the New Jersey Broadband Map, so it canbe used as an effective tool for state policy makers, businesses andcitizens to:◦ Identify pockets of unmet demand or need◦ Help policy makers identify where the unmet needs are so they can determine how best tofulfill them◦ Use the map as a tool to market NJ and support decisions for businesses looking torelocate◦ Identify where existing technology infrastructures can be leveraged◦ Help providers and customers find each other8
