USAC Open Data

Many USAC stakeholders currently use data generated by USAC's processes. For example, carriers, academics, consultants, think tanks, and government agencies use these data in a variety of ways to track the progress of applications, identify opportunities for improvement, and measure our collective progress in providing connectivity service to all Americans.

"Open data" is a set of practices, approaches, and principles that organizations use to make data sets available in an equitable and reliable way. Data can then be freely used, re-used, and redistributed by anyone. USAC has begun to put into place an open data strategy. This will allow us to make our data open and accessible to our stakeholders and to the general public.

USAC's goals are to:

  • provide high-value data sets for USAC stakeholders,

  • increase accessibility of these data sets, using industry standard practices, and

  • work collaboratively with partners to make best use of these data.
