Connected Nation Technical and Broadband Opportunity Assistance

Optimizing broadband opportunities and overcoming technical hurdles in a rapidly-evolving regulatory and market environment is challenging. Connected Nation’s mission is to promote broadband adoption and expansion across the nation. CN has been working with broadband providers as well as federal, state, and local stakeholders in data collection and analysis to advance broadband access, adoption, and use across the board. In addition to preparing FCC Form 477 filings, there are other analyses and products CN can develop to aid broadband providers in improved operations of their current network and better understand the community and potential marketplace around them.

FCC Form 477 Filings

Connected Nation understands the requirements of the FCC Form 477 as well as the data processing and analysis necessary to prepare the filings. ALL broadband providers must file Form 477 with the FCC on a semi-annual basis if they are providing high-speed Internet services.

The next Form 477 filing deadline is September 1, 2017. Data reporting should reflect operational status conditions as of June 30, 2017.
