Pitney Bowes Business Insight Announces Qualification Package for Federal Broadband Stimulus Programs

Location Intelligence and Data Solutions Offer Telecommunications Providers Required Network and Mapping Capabilities to Satisfy Application Requirements

Troy, NY—July 28, 2009 — Pitney Bowes Business Insight, the leading global provider of location and communication intelligence solutions, today announced availability of its Federal Broadband Qualification package. The package provides wireless and wireline carriers with the network and customer data, as well as location intelligence software, required to apply for federal broadband stimulus funding.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 stimulus package allocates 7.2 billion dollars for spending on broadband infrastructure through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) and the Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP). These programs are designed to bring high-speed Internet service to rural areas and to create a nationwide inventory map of existing broadband service capability and availability across the United States .

Companies applying for stimulus funding must provide specified broadband data, including demographic and geographical areas that are not served by any advanced telecommunications provider. Pitney Bowes Business Insight is providing the necessary data and mapping capabilities to satisfy stimulus application requirements.

“As the August 14th application deadline for broadband stimulus funding rapidly approaches, Pitney Bowes Business Insight is helping telecommunications providers meet the critical data and presentation requirements,” said Chris Cherry, director, communications vertical strategy, Pitney Bowes Business Insight. “The Federal Broadband Qualification Package enables wireless and wireline carriers to highlight the geographic and demographic areas requiring an increase in broadband network, simplifying the application process for stimulus funding.”

Pitney Bowes Business Insight will provide carriers applying for broadband federal grants with:

  • Data and mapping capabilities to create the necessary maps of each proposed service area
  • Demographic reports from census data of each proposed service area
  • Total number of households within providers’ networks
  • Population and population density within providers’ networks
  • Rural, urban and suburban network classification coding
