The New Hampshire Broadband Mapping & Planning Program

The New Hampshire Broadband Mapping and Planning Program (NHBMPP) is a comprehensive program that seeks to understand where broadband is currently available in NH, how it can be made more widely available in the future, and how to encourage increased levels of broadband adoption and usage. We recognize that a vibrant local and state economy requires broadband infrastructure to support economic development, energy efficiency, advances in health care, and improved educational opportunities, as well as the knowledge base and resources to effectively utilize that infrastructure.

Program accomplishments include:

  • Mapping broadband coverage based on data from internet service providers (ISPs);
  • Inventorying broadband connectivity at each school, library, hospital, municipal governmental building, and municipal public safety facility; and
  • In 2015, NHBMPP completed a comprehensive five-year initiative with the goal of understanding where broadband is currently available in the state, how it can be made more widely available in the future, and how to encourage increased levels of broadband adoption and usage.
  • In 2016, Under the auspices of a grant from the Northern Border Regional Commission, NHBMPP worked to extend and enhance broadband availability mapping and related outreach activities in the 43 communities in Coos County, New Hampshire.
