NTIA Data (June 2010 to 2014)
Broadband Company Name Identification
Fundamental to the Census-NBM system is the ability to properly identify each Broadband company with its associated Broadband technologies and bandwidth speeds. The NTIA provides four different company names for each entity. In addition to these four, the Census-NBM experts have developed a Uniform Corporate Name which is a consistent Corporate Name across and within states. Census-NBM also provides the Local Exchange Company Study Area Names associated with USF support and other regulatory filings.

Census-NBM experts have carefully screened all of the filing entities to create its powerful Sorted Company Category that identifies and separates ILECs from CLECs, Cable MSO companies and Municipality and Utility companies.
Census-NBM Enhanced Company Identifiers
Study Area - A designated area where an ILEC is providing local exchange service. Each area has a 6 digit SAC code for companies eligible for USF support.

Uniform Corporate Name - In order to be able to filter corporate entities by a single name such as AT&T, Comcast, or CenturyLink we have scrubbed the NTIA names and provide assured consistency in this powerful policy and competitive tool.

Sorted Company Category - Researchers and Analysts want to be sure what kind of carrier they are investigating. The Sorted Company Category ensures the correct type of provider and simplifies analysis: ILEC, CLEC, Cable MSO or Municipal/Utility.

NTIA Entities: Holding Company - Name of holding company or commonly owned or controlled entities. FRN - Provider FCC registration number. Provider Name - The business entity name associated with the FRN. DBA - The Doing Business Name of the entity. Customers can contact this entity to purchase services.
