FCC Form 477 Reporting

FCC Form 477 Reporting

It’s that time again!
Use TowerCoverage or MarketBroadband for your FCC Reporting Requirements
Section 5.3 of the FCC Form 477 requires you to report all blocks where you *can* provide coverage, not just the blocks where you have subscribers. Be sure your report in Section 5.3 is accurate to help prevent large telcos from securing government funding to roll competing services in areas you already offer coverage.
Ultimate Back Office reports the blocks where you have subscribers and does not have a means to show your entire coverage area and the blocks covered by your network.
Both TowerCoverage.com and MarketBroadband.com offer this service for a modest fee. TowerCoverage.com also integrates with UBO to enhance its mapping power. Simply enter your account details in the ISP Config > Extensions > Tower Coverage.
