Broadband Finder

This app finds information about broadband service providers based on location data on the device. If device’s location service is turned on, it will use current location of the device to access broadband providers available in vicinity. Alternatively, you can search for providers by entering name of U.S. city in “Search box”.

This app uses Google Geolocation API and NationalBroadbandMap.gov API to search information for service providers.

The National Broadband Map (NBM) is a searchable and interactive website that allows users to view broadband availability across every neighborhood in the United States. The NBM was created by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), in collaboration with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and in partnership with 50 states, five territories and the District of Columbia. The NBM is a project of NTIA’s State Broadband Initiative. The NBM will be updated approximately every six months and was first published on February 17, 2011.

For more information on NBM go to http://www.broadbandmap.gov/about

NOTE: The availability and accuracy of the service provider data is based on API access to services mentioned above. This app or app provider provides no guarantee what so ever about usability of data and this app should only be used as one of the tool to discover providers. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
