  • We know there has been a lot of interest from states on how they can continue to participate in and be connected to the collection of broadband deployment data.
    We’ve been doing and will continue to do outreach to the broadband providers that file Form 477 and their associations, and we realize that they may be coming to you as well, given all of your experience in collecting these data over the past few years. Since many of you have built relationships with providers and are a great resources, to the extent you can continue to support certain providers through this collection and beyond - if you’ll be continuing after the end of the SBI program - that would be helpful. An area where some filers could use assistance, based on what we’ve heard so far, is determining the list of census blocks where they offer services based on the current NBM data. This is especially true for smaller fixed wireless providers who will need to migrate their deployment data submissions from coverage area polygons to a list of census blocks.
    In addition, we realize that state entities may have relationships with smaller providers and knowledge of their deployments, as well as expertise on where providers do and do not offer service in a state. We would be happy to get any input you have on these issues and would use it in following up with the relevant Form 477 filers.

    1. 1. FCC Collection of Broadband Deployment Data through Form 477 Webinar for NTIA and SBI Participants July 15, 2014
    2. 2. Data Collections: Status Quo 2 FCC Form 477 (through December 2013) NTIA/SBI (through June 2014) Number of subscribers in each speed tier: Subscription data Maximum speed available from networks: Deployment data What broadband data Fixed: census tract Mobile: state Wired: census block (or smaller) Wireless: coverage shape files What geography
    3. 3. • Both NTIA/SBI and FCC Form 477 collecting data on broadband deployment (availability) as of June 30, 2014 – Broadband providers should submit to both collections – National Broadband Map as of June 30, 2014 will be based on NTIA/SBI data • Both data sets due October 1, 2014 Overlapping Collection of Deployment Data 3
    4. 4. • Form 477 is mandatory • Form 477 collects the number associated with the advertised upload/download speeds offered (no longer tiers/ranges) • maximum for fixed and minimum for mobile • Form 477 requires distinction of speeds offered for residential and non-residential fixed services where appropriate • No sub-block data in Form 477 • Fixed wireless providers file as "fixed" not "wireless" in Form 477 • Form 477 requires mobile broadband coverage areas for each speed, technology, and spectrum band combination • Form 477 collects mobile voice coverage areas by technology and spectrum band • Filers can submit data in a single, nationwide filing with Form 477 Differences in Deployment Data Collected by Form 477 vs. SBI 4
    5. 5. •New Form 477 filing interface for collecting data as of June 30, 2014 and beyond will launch July 31, 2014 •Form 477 data as of June 30, 2014 due October 1, 2014 •Future Form 477 data submission deadlines: –Data as of December 31 will be due March 1 of following year –Data as of June 30 will be due following September 1 Timing for Collection Form 477 Deployment Data 5
    6. 6. •Deployment data will be made available to the public – Except for some mobile broadband data on spectrum and speed •Timing of data release will be similar to current NBM, though initial rounds may have longer lag time •Data format similar to current NBM – Data download will be available – Data available at block level for all blocks – Public mobile broadband deployment data available by coverage area polygon and block Release of Form 477 Deployment Data 6
    7. 7. • Form 477 will continue to collect data on subscription to broadband and voice services • Number of subscribers/connections by census tract for fixed and by state for mobile • Deployment and subscription data filed on the same form with same filing schedule • Subscription data will remain confidential • Except for aggregate metrics (no provider-specific data) released in FCC reports • Internet Access Services Report and Local Telephone Competition Report released for each data submission cycle • Sharing of confidential, disaggregated subscription data will remain as-is. • State public utility commissions that are able to afford confidential treatment to the data are provided access to data for their state • More aggregated data shared with Eligible Entities Form 477 Subscription Data 7
    8. 8. •States are a great resource to providers and can assist where needed –Identifying census blocks with deployment • Generating provider-specific block lists from NBM data • Special consideration for fixed wireless providers migrating from polygons to blocks –June 30, 2014 data set and beyond •State entities can provide FCC with insight on reaching out to smaller providers and input on data quality Coordination with State Entities 8
    9. 9. E-RATE 9 • On July 11 (last Friday) the FCC adopted the E-rate Modernization Order • The order seeks to ensure schools have affordable access to high-speed broadband sufficient to support digital learning and robust connectivity for libraries • The FCC has sought data from providers, states, schools and libraries about current connectivity – Internet access, WAN and internal connections • We are continuing to seek such data • We are also improving our mandatory information collections for participating schools and libraries as part of the E-rate program • We welcome your thoughts on high-quality data collections re: connectivity to and within schools and libraries
