National Broadband Data The National Broadband Data represents coverage information across Canada for existing broadband service providers with their associated technology types. The coverage information is aggregated and deployed over a grid of hexagons, which cover areas of roughly 25 square km each. Broadband Internet service availability is provided for download/upload speed markers (5/1, 10/2, 25/5 and 50/10 Mbps) where more than 75% of total dwellings covered within the hexagon have access to broadband service offerings meeting these markers. **NEW:** In order to improve the granularity of the broadband data, ISED and the CRTC are now providing aggregated and anonymous broadband services data based on the pseudo-household statistical model, hence achieving higher precision in depicting the broadband Internet and LTE service availability. This information is available below under the "NBD PHH Subset" resource. For more information on the pseudo-household statistical model, refer to the [Pseudo-Household Demographic Distribution](https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/b3a1d603-19ca-466c-ae95-b5185e56addf "Pseudo-Household Demographic Distribution") dataset. 2012-01-16 2019-12-10 Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada yannick.lacharite@canada.ca Science and Technologynationalbroadbandcoverageavailabilityinternet service providersunserved populationunderserved populationhexagon NBD SubsetCSV https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD_Hex_Data_EngFr.csv/$file/NBD_Hex_Data_EngFr.csv Data Dictionary - ENTXT http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD-data_dictionary_e.txt/$file/NBD-data_dictionary_e.txt Data Dictionary - FRTXT http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD-dictionnaire_donnees_f.txt/$file/NBD-dictionnaire_donnees_f.txt NBD MapKMZ https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/Map_Data_KMZ.zip/$file/Map_Data_KMZ.zip NBD Subset ISPCSV https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD_Hex_Data_ISP_EngFr.csv/$file/NBD_Hex_Data_ISP_EngFr.csv NBD SubsetKMZ https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD_Subset.zip/$file/NBD_Subset.zip NBD MapCSV https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/Map_Data_CSV.zip/$file/Map_Data_CSV.zip NBD MapTAB https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/Map_Data_MapInfo.zip/$file/Map_Data_MapInfo.zip NBD PHH SubsetCSV https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD_PHH_Subset.zip/$file/NBD_PHH_Subset.zip NBD PHH Data Dictionary - ENTXT https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD-PHH-Data_dictionary_e.txt/$file/NBD-PHH-Data_dictionary_e.txt NBD PHH Data Dictionary - FRTXT https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/720.nsf/vwapj/NBD-PHH-Dictionnaire_donnees_f.txt/$file/NBD-PHH-Dictionnaire_donnees_f.txt
