High Cost: Connect America Fund Broadband Map (CAF Map)

This dataset serves as the foundation for the Connect America Fund Broadband Map (CAF Map), which displays the geographic areas eligible for CAF support, as well as the specific fixed locations where carriers participating in the program have built out broadband service. The information in the CAF Map comes directly from carriers, which submit broadband deployment data annually through USAC’s High Cost Universal Broadband (HUBB) portal. The current CAF Map is based on data certified in the HUBB as of December 31, 2020 deployment. USAC independently verifies deployment to a random sample of reported locations each year to monitor carrier compliance with CAF build-out obligations, but not all data in the map has been subject to this review.
