Mapping and Planning

A portion of the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) was allocated for broadband mapping and planning. The ORS was directed to secure a vendor for the development of a broadband statewide county-by-county mapping plan and to secure a vendor for the development of a statewide broadband infrastructure plan.

South Carolina map of where broadband is availableSouth Carolina Broadband Map

The South Carolina Broadband Map shows the availability of broadband service to every residential and business site in the state. Broadband data is provided by the majority of broadband providers in South Carolina. Based on broadband data provided, users can input their address to show the availability of broadband at their location. This includes download speeds, the connection type, and the providers offering service to their address. The map does not reveal the provider, if any, that a consumer may currently have service with at the particular address.

This map is best used with Chromium-based browsers including newer versions of Microsoft Edge (January 2020), Google Chrome, and Brave; or other browsers such as Firefox and Safari.

Contacting the ORS About Map Discrepancies
The ORS is continuing to make the South Carolina Broadband Map as accurate as possible. The ORS is encouraging consumers who see a discrepancy in the map-— as in, the map suggests they have broadband service, but they actually do not— to contact the ORS.

Mapping Vendor

CostQuest Associates, Inc. was engaged by the ORS to perform various Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-related services associated with this mapping project. Specifically, CostQuest processed broadband service provider data to analyze the current state of broadband availability and technology across South Carolina. CostQuest also identified the number of broadband serviceable structures and their map-based locations in served and unserved areas of the state.

Data Request

The ORS requested all broadband service providers operating in South Carolina to submit data and information on the availability of broadband service at delivered download and upload speeds and by technology type for each address in the state the provider can serve.

Request for Broadband Providers to Report Errors or Omissions

The ORS is requesting broadband providers in South Carolina to review the map and identify any errors or omissions. Any inaccuracies or omissions should be sent via email to the ORS before February 19, 2021.
