A click on the map above (or HERE) will take you to a website that illustrates all of the broadband in New York City.
- The red dot on the map illustrates 380 Ocean, the only building in our area that gets high speed (over 50 Mbps (megabits per second). It is provided by Verizon. Click address to see more.
- The blue buildings (like Erasmus High School) are those where it is possible but like us at under 7 Mbps
- The grey buildings (I put a square around AKNA) gets less than that because of how the phone lines work (or don’t work) and the map legend reads “unknown”.
Note: The little ‘b’ is for ‘bit’. (Mbps) It is a capital ‘B’, it is for ‘Byte’ (MBps). Mb and MB are abbreviations for the smaller vs. larger data sizes. (Thanks Ian.)
The map is not fully up to date as most of Flatbush Commercial has an Optimum or FiOS line.
On the NYC Broadband Map website there is a request form for broadband. Find your building and register to the site to request Broadband service.
Think “squeaky wheel”.
I filled out the form. If you filled it out please comment below….
