CPUC Deadline for Submission

Who Should Submit Data? 

  • Facilities-based providers only (Partial Resellers should submit data on broadband they provide from facilities they own; however pure resellers should not submit data).
  • Providers with broadband speeds greater than 200 Kbps, in at least one direction, that can provision new requests for broadband services within an interval that is typical for that type of connection.
  • Providers that have actually built out their broadband network infrastructure to which they either currently provide service or could perform a standard broadband installation i.e., “Serviceable Locations”. A standard installation is defined in the Broadband DATA Act as “[t]he initiation by a provider of fixed broadband internet access service [within10 business days of a request] in an area in which the provider has not previously offered that service, with no charges or delays attributable to the extension of the network of the provider.”
