Fiber Finder is a simple but powerful tool to enable broadband providers, manufacturers, state broadband offices, federal regulators, and others to see the extent of residential and business fiber deployment in the United States and in US territories.
A hexagon is highlighted if the specified category of fiber (residential or business) is present.
Fiber Finder reflects the May / June 2023 FCC release of FCC BDC Fabric v2 coverage data and metadata reflecting networks nationwide as of 12-31-2022.
It shows which areas are populated and which are not. It also shows the total number of locations and units in each hexagon (level 8).
It includes data for the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Fiber Finder Getting Started Guide describes the download / installation process, provides an overview of features and functionality, and addresses frequently asked questions (FAQs).
Those participating in BEAD (with a need for compliance analytics), those interested in understanding all four BEAD "reliable" technologies, and those interested in detailed fiber planning and analysis (depth of coverage, coverage category cross-tabs, competitive footprints, etc.) might consider the National Hex Toolkit and the Fiber Strategy Toolkit.
