Broadband service availability and characteristics are depicted from data assembled by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Utah Automated Geographic Reference Center. Data sources include biannual broadband service provider submissions and publicly available sources. Data has been modified, where necessary, to meet broadband mapping standards.

Speeds shown are the ‘maximum advertised’ for the geographic features depicted, and must exceed 0.768 Mbps download and 0.2 Mbps upload to be included. Actual speeds may vary within and along census blocks and roads due to the granularity and currency of the data, technological limitations, and service plan limitations. Users of this data and associated map visualizations are encouraged to inquire directly to providers for current service availability and speed.

All information presented on Utah’s interactive broadband map is only for general reference purposes and may contain errors and omissions. The state of Utah makes no warranty for information or data available, express or implied, including but not limited to the fitness for use for a particular purpose.

Map Data

All broadband mapping data is sourced directly from a broadband provider, or from working directly with a provider.

Wireless broadband internet data is mapped using coverage area footprints derived from analyzing antennae location, signal strength and terrain. Wireline broadband internet data is mapped using provider reported availability footprints in developed areas.

Once a provider’s broadband coverage is initially mapped, data updates take several forms including GIS files, written descriptions, provider created maps as well as verbal and written discussions.

Validation

An essential part of data validation is data intake and processing flow. Utah broadband data flow consists of:

Aerial photography, address location services, census block geometry, and road segment geometry used for broadband service mapping and quality control of the broadband data are from public domain resources in the State Geographic Information Database.

Verification

Broadband data received are reviewed for overall verification. Besides initial verification, other sample verification methods are listed below:
