Underserved, Unserved - How to Measure

We at FirstMile.US just posted a new document called A Comprehensive Determination of Broadband Deployment to Designate Unserved and Underserved Communities Using Fact-based Measurement Criteria

This was a revamp of a set of criteria developed in 2008 for creating a regional ranking of unserved and underserved communities in California's rural north coast area. I encourage you to take a look at the 5 significant criteria we determined as useful in ranking:
  1. Number of service providers
  2. Price
  3. Coverage
  4. Upload and download speed
  5. Backhaul/Middle Mile availability
The report is intended to be a self-help document for regions trying to convey a deep understanding of their broadband situation.
