API » Wireline Broadband API


Description
This API returns all the wireline providers within a US census block given a passed latitude and longitude.

Latest data version released jun2014. Previous data versions include jun2011, dec2011, jun2012, dec2012, jun2013, dec2013.

Starting with jun2012 data, API responses will include new quality scores (maximum scores for each metric, as well as upload and download speed quality). The previous data versions dec2011 and jun2011 do not include these additional quality scores.

Why We Provide It
We are providing this API to increase the value of the transparency of the National Broadband Map. With this API users can retrieve the full list of wireline broadband providers at a given location (e.g. latitude and longitude).
