BEAD High Cost Threshold Model

Fiber Broadband Association and Cartesian have developed a new, sophisticated tool – a financial model built upon geospatial analysis – that States can use to help develop and evaluate their Thresholds.  This economic model allows States to test various inputs, including their chosen Threshold, and then see the “implications” of using that Threshold – that is, the extent of fiber coverage, the extent of alternative technology coverage, and whether any funds remain. Please use the links below to request access to this tool and the guide on how it works. To watch a replay of FBA’s August 30, 2023 webinar about the tool, click here.
