Welcome to Connect Iowa's interactive web mapping application, My ConnectView. Here you can explore Iowa's broadband coverage.
The data contained within this map are currently in beta version. The map will continuously improve in accuracy as the data are validated through public feedback, field verification, and the participation of more service providers. Currently, broadband is defined as Internet service with advertised speeds of at least 768 Kbps downstream and 200 Kbps upstream.

Connect Iowa relies on citizen feedback to verify the accuracy of the broadband inventory maps. We strongly encourage the public to help us in the validation process. Please use the feedback button within the interactive map to submit questions or recommendations for coverage area changes. We respond to all inquiries and incorporate relevant information.

Please Note: The data contained in this map are currently in beta version and will be updated as we receive public feedback and more provider data. As of October 1, 2013, this map includes data provided by 195 Iowa high-speed Internet providers. According to the most current information, 98.26% of Iowa households have access to terrestrial fixed broadband service of at least 768 Kbps downstream and 200 Kbps upstream (excluding mobile and satellite services) leaving approximately 21,300 unserved households - or 1.74% - that do not have access to a fixed wireless or wired broadband service offering. With mobile broadband service included, 99.99% or 1,221,476 Iowa households have access to broadband service of at least 768 Kbps downstream and 200 Kbps upstream. This analysis is conducted through a geoprocessing tool that analyzes Census Block demographics with the aggregated broadband service overlay from the provider data.

Providers: As part of the State Broadband Initiative grant program, this map will be periodically updated with data from additional participating providers and when new service areas are identified. Connect Iowa wants to encourage all providers to participate. There is an informational page on the website for broadband providers.
