“North Carolina has significant and unique middle-mile assets that can be leveraged to increase speeds and capacity in last-mile deployments and help leverage solutions for serving some of the unserved pockets in the state”

Leveraging assets to reach that last mile.

Mapping and Tracking

The NC Broadband Map is an open-source, interactive GIS (Geographic Information System) map that is intended to display where broadband is available as well as to identify unserved and underserved areas of the state, by census block or street segment. The map outlines what types of broadband technologies – including DSL, cable, mobile wireless, fixed wireless and fiber – are available to households statewide and which companies are offering these services. Users can query information by plugging in a street address or selecting a specific technology type.


As a quick visualization of statewide broadband availability across various speeds, we have created one map series for downloads speeds and another for upload speeds, both with accompanying statistics.

If you currently lack service, please register your address so that North Carolina may have more granular coverage data.
