Mobile Broadband Coverage (Global - 1km) - ...

URL: https://data.apps.fao.org/catalog/dataset/6943b543-12b5-4722-b38d-0415ab0adac0

The World Mobile Broadband coverage is a 1km resolution raster grid (1/0) representation of cellular mobile wireless Internet access. The grid is derived from Collins Bartholomew’s GSMA Mobile Coverage Explorer database and was computed using both operators’ submission to Global System for Mobile Communication (GSMA) and OpenCell ID cell tower database.

The dataset includes operator’s submission coverage for 3G with strong signal, 4G strong signal and 5G, sourced from the network operators from submissions made directly to Collins Bartholomew or to GSMA, from operators who provide roaming detail for inclusion in the GSMA’s Network Coverage Maps web application.

This data is supplemented with coverage created from OpenCellID tower locations. These derived locations have been used as the centre points of a radius of coverage: 12 kilometres for GSM networks, and 4km for 3G and 4G networks. No 5G data yet exists in the OpenCellID database. These circles of coverage from each tower have then been merged to create an overall representation of network coverage. The dataset uses 3G, 4G and 5G.
