Measuring Broadband America


Notice to Hawaii Participants in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Measuring Broadband America (MBA) Program
As of August 1, 2023, the FCC ended its partnership with SamKnows for the collection of fixed broadband performance data. If you received a Whitebox as a MBA participant, please click here to be forwarded to the FCC’s instruction on how to stop unauthorized MBA data collection by SamKnows and the FCC contact person for any questions.

Measuring Broadband America (MBA) was the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) study to measure consumer broadband performance across the nation with the goal of improving the availability of information for consumers about their broadband service performance — to empower broadband consumers with tech-driven transparency.

Measuring Broadband America Reports

The initial MBA Fixed Broadband Report, published in August 2011, presented the first broad-scale study of directly measured consumer broadband performance throughout the United States. The annual published MBA reports provide a performance benchmark for fixed broadband Internet access services, and track progress towards the FCC’s continuing goal of improving the speeds and quality of broadband access commonly available to the American public.

Note: The data on Hawaii available in these reports differs from the information available for other States because Hawaii was not included in the MBA program until 2017.
