NYS Residential Broadband Availability Map and Search Disclaimer

Broadband service availability and characteristics are derived from the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Fixed Form 477 Broadband Deployment Data - June 2019 (version 1) which includes broadband service provider submissions. The FCC uses a one-served, all-served method for identifying Census Block service, and, therefore, actual service may vary within and along Census Blocks. Because of this method, in some areas, the Broadband Program Office (BPO) awards may fund unserved or underserved locations within a Census Block that appears to have existing access to 100 Mbps.

The "Project Status" of BPO Awards is updated on a periodic basis. BPO Awards described as "Complete" may be subject to additional review and/or technical validation by the BPO.

The BPO has removed Census Blocks from eligibility for the New NY Broadband Program where it has determined that either service meeting the Program's speed goals, or a commitment to provide such service, is currently in place.

The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) approved a merger between Charter Communications, Inc. and Time Warner Cable (Case no. 15-M-0388) in January 2016 which required Charter to extend its network to pass an additional 145,000 premises across the State by 2020. Charter, now doing business as Spectrum, has launched a web portal to provide more information related to the required build. Please note that the locations of Charter's expansion plan are not represented on this map due to confidentiality concerns. To learn if your address is included in Spectrum's NYS broadband expansion plan, click "Search for Broadband" and "Spectrum Address Look Up" within the map's interface, or visit the Spectrum Address Look Up website directly.
