Broadband Deployment Information

FCC National Broadband Map

The FCC has released its new National Broadband Map, which provides a far more accurate and detailed picture of broadband availability across the country than previously available. Consumers can search for their address and find information about whether broadband service is available, the internet providers that service the location, and maximum applicable download and upload speeds. The map will continue to improve because providers must update information twice a year and stakeholders, including individual consumers, may submit challenges on the accuracy of the map directly through a link on the map itself. The National Broadband Map will be used to inform allocation of federal funding for future broadband projects.

“Internet Speed Map” Tool

DCCA has created this tool to allow residents to report their home internet service to create a crowd-sourced map of Hawaii’s broadband landscape.

Access the “Internet Speed Map” tool.

“No Internet Service” Mapping Tool

DCCA has created this tool to allow residents to map their location to report that no internet service is available in their community by mapping that location. This information can help identify unserved or underserved locations to assist policymakers and other stakeholders in efforts to improve connectivity to those areas.
