Bloosurf's Goal: Meet Regulatory compliance requirements in an accurate, cost-effective, and efficient manner.
Bloosurf is a leading broadband service provider based out of Salisbury, Maryland. As a recipient of the Connect America Fund (CAF-II) subsidies, Bloosurf wanted to be 100% compliant with the regulatory obligations while maintaining operational efficiency. Importantly, given the pandemic-mandated restrictions in March 2020, Bloosurf wanted to conduct a virtual assessment by reviewing aerial imagery to determine Broadband Serviceable Locations (BSLs) remotely. To meet this 100% compliance goal, Bloosurf had to meet Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) requirements which included:
Bloosurf needed to determine which addresses were tied to which buildings within a parcel and report its lat/longs, known as Building-Based Geocoding.
Identifying Broadband Serviceable Locations (BSLs)
Additionally, for each address, Bloosurf needed to report how many broadband serviceable locations (BSLs) Bloosurf served.
