Columbia County Broadband Map 

The Planning Department has developed an interactive online Broadband Map showing the various service areas of Internet service providers operating in the country.  The map also includes layers showing where NYS Broadband Progam Office grants have been awarded, school districts, and census blocks. The data included in this map is extracted from the FCC 477 data, dated June 2019. The ISPs may have extended their service areas since then.

Internet Service Provider Maps

Updated PDF versions of individual internet service provider areas were produced in October 2020 using the same June 2019 FCC 477 data found in the online broadband map.  There are 15 maps in all, one for each ISP operating in Columbia County.
