State and Federal
Broadband Maps

Maps are one of the key ways that we use to visualize what the current picture of broadband looks like in North Carolina.

Federal organizations use similar maps for the same reason but look at it on a national level. This allows for better planning across the country. While they are national maps, they provide detailed information on a state, county, and even residential area

Below, you will find a list of maps that you can use as a resource to determine things like your potential connection speed, broadband availability nearby, technology types, etc.

Because of the fast moving nature of broadband buildout and development, some of these maps have information that may be older and not fully up-to-date. If you need information regarding broadband connectivity near you, please contact us via email at technicalassistance@nc.gov

NCBroadband Map

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.
