This dataset contains internet connectivity information as represented by hexagons within the province of British Columbia. Each hexagon shows coverage information, by technology, for existing broadband service providers. The coverage information is aggregated and represented over a grid of hexagons, which cover areas of roughly 25 square km each.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
BCNC_NCS_SYSID NCS_SYSID NUMBER 10 Is a system generated unique identification number
HEX_CODE_ID HX_CD_ID VARCHAR2 12 Unique Hexagon identifier from Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED). Consists of a 2-digit provincial code followed by an 8-digit unique number. This is a primary key of this table. e.g., BC41312345.
POPULATION POPULATION NUMBER 10 Estimated population contained within a particular hexagon. Based on Statistics Canada Census data, derived from Pseudo-Households (PHH) point data.
TOTAL_DWELLINGS TTL_DWELL NUMBER 10 Estimated total dwelling count including usual residences plus cottages, seasonal homes or any dwelling that may not be considered a permenant residence. Based on Statistics Canada Census data, derived from PHH point data.
USUAL_RESIDENCES USL_RSIDNC NUMBER 10 Estimated usual residency dwelling count for a particular hexagon. Based on Statistics Canada Census data. Based on Statistics Canada 2016 Census data, derived from PHH point data.
WIRELINE_COVERAGE WIRE_COV NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that could be served by DSL, Fibre to the home, and Cable technology within that hexagon.
FIXED_WIRELESS_COVERAGE FX_WL_VOC NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that could be served by Fixed Wireless technology within that hexagon.
MOBILE_WIRELESS_COVERAGE MB_WL_COV NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that could be served by Mobile Wireless technology within that hexagon.
SATELLITE_COVERAGE SAT_COV NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that could be served by Direct-to-Home Satellite technology within that hexagon.
PERCENT_SERVED_5_MBPS PS_5MBPS NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that have access to residential 5+ Mbps download service within that hexagon. This incorporates all applicable technologies available in that hexagon and models for capacity and coverage limitations. Where there are no reported dwellings, values are represented as -999.
PERCENT_SERVED_50_MBPS PS_50MBPS NUMBER 5 Estimated percentage of households that have access to residential 50+ Mbps download service within that hexagon. This incorporates all applicable technologies available in that hexagon and models for capacity and coverage limitations. Where there are no reported dwellings, values are represented as -999.
