Broadband Maps

Maps of Columbia County municipalities can be found at the bottom of this page. The following are descriptions of the various layers found on the County, Town, and City Maps:

Description of the Layers found on the Service Line, Service Provider, and Broadband Status Maps:

    Unserved Census Blocks
       Unserved Census Blocks are defined as areas where broadband service is not available from a wireline-based                  provider at advertised speeds equal to or higher than 25 Mbps download.

•     Underserved Census Blocks
       Underserved Census Blocks are defined as areas where broadband service is not available from a wireline-based              provider at advertised speeds equal to or higher than 100 Mbps download.

     Census Block Areas to be provided with increased service under the PSC Agreement
       These are Unserved or Underserved areas where Time Warner Cable-Charter has committed to provide service                under the agreement with the NYS Public Service Commission.

    Census Block Areas to be provided with increased service under CAF
       These are areas where Verizon NY declined support from the Connect America Fund (CAF), an FCC program. Within          New York State, Verizon declined $31 million in annual CAF support, for 78,245 eligible locations, and the FCC is now        reviewing alternatives to re-auction this unclaimed CAF funding to other broadband service providers.

    Additional Service Area Census Blocks
       These are Unserved and Underserved Areas that are within the Time Warner Cable-Charter Communications                    Franchise Area, but are not included in the above-mentioned areas where Time Warner Cable-Charter has committed        to provide service under the agreement with the NYS Public Service Commission.

    Phase II Awarded Census Blocks
       These areas have received funding for new or improved service under the NYS BPO Phase II Grant. They are color-           coded by which service provider received the award.

    Census Block Areas not identified as needing improved service
       These are areas that have not been identified as needing new or improved service, or that already have another              program in place to provide new or improved service (such as Phase I BPO funding).

•     Census Block Areas remaining un/underserved with no current commitment to provide service
       These are Unserved and Underserved Areas where there is no current commitment by a service provider to provide          improved service, nor any other program devoted to providing new or improved service to the area. These census            blocks will most likely remain eligible for funding under the BPO Phase III Grant application.

     Roads with Service Lines
       These are roads that have been identified as having access to some form of wireline-based broadband service. Most        of these wirelines are within the road right-of-way. However, some roads identified as having service lines are                  actually served via lines that run behind the homes located along them, not directly along the roadway. A few are            served via wirelines that run through privately owned open fields, far from any road right-of-way.

       There were three sources used to identify these service lines. The initial set of service lines was developed by ECC          Technologies through its contract with the Columbia County Planning Department. This dataset identified the type of        wireline(s) found along each road segment as being Fiber optic, Coaxial, or both. Additional information was gleaned        from numerous franchise agreement maps supplied by Columbia County Economic Development Corporation. A third        source of information was a comprehensive map of service lines provided by Mid-Hudson Cablevision. These last two        sources did not differentiate between fiber optic and coaxial.

•     Residential Tax Parcels
       The Columbia County Tax Parcel data was supplied by the Real Property Tax Department. Each dot represents the            center of a parcel that has been classified as a residential use by the local tax assessor(s). The dot represents the          geographic center of the parcel, NOT the location of the residential structure.

    Service Areas
       The service provider service areas were accessed through the National Broadband Map website. The data                        downloaded from this site is dated June 2014. The service areas may have changed for some of the service                      providers shown.


Disclaimer:
The areas depicted as unserved or underserved are based on an analysis of the FCC’s June 2015 Form 477 Data and other broadband availability data provided to the New York State Broadband Program Office.  Between that date and the December 13, 2016 release date of the maps included in this drop box, the various providers may have expanded service into unserved areas and/or increased the service level in those areas designated underserved.  In order to ensure accuracy of these maps and to permit the tracking of future improvements, any updates, confirmed by the provider, will be found in each municipality’s sub-file entitled “Service Updates”.  These sub-files will be added as confirmed updates are received from the provider(s).  If any viewer has information that is in conflict with these maps, please notify the CEDC  office by email at mtucker@columbiaedc.com or estiffler@columbiaedc.com.
