Mapping Broadband Availability

The New Hamphsire Broadband Mapping & Planning Program (NHBMPP) relies on the FCC definition of broadband for all map products.  In January of 2015, the FCC adopted a new definition of broadband - 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up.  NHBMPP maps other internet access speeds, but does not categorize them as broadband.

To view maps of broadband availability based on various technologies and speed thresholds, please visit the NHBMPP map viewer.

The initial master list of providers was extracted from the "New Hampshire Broadband Action Plan", 2008, NH Telecommunications Advisory Board (TAB) and NH Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED).   This listing was cross-referenced against a statewide cell tower inventory maintained by the NH Office of Energy and Planning.  NHBMPP staff maintains an ongoing effort to identify additional active service providers in the state based on continuing interactions with TAB and DRED, review of speed test results, updated FCC data when published, and other sources as available.
