Oh sure, we're going to plug 150-200 million home and business addresses into each database -- I'm sure they're built for that kind of scale!

BTW, Verizon's database is pretty awful. Just think bad thoughts and it'll go tits up. Comcast's database validates on what's available in the market, but then orders get canceled if it's determined in the field that the actual address isn't served. So those databases are relatively useful/useless, but not authoritative.

No, they want to know the current state of broadband availability in the United States. The theory is that it's:
a. Completely unavailable in many smaller towns.
b. So unavailable in most other places as to give the incumbent operators monopolistic market powers.
c. Not growing at pace with the rest of the world.
