CPUC Releases Mobile Broadband App for iPhones

We have some exciting news for iPhone and iPad users. The CPUC's iPhone app, CalBroadband, is now available on the iPhone app store. Download it today. By using this app, you can locate broadband providers in your community, for fixed service, mobile service and satellite. You can also compare and contrast cell phone provider speed claims with CPUC estimates of cell phone speeds. CalBroadband has two choices for accessing broadband data.

First, you can just pin a point on the map to access our data or you can enter in a street address. The app's map also tracks your current location, which you can also click on to look up broadband service.

Unlike our android speed test app, this iPhone app does not conduct broadband speed tests. We are hoping to release an iPhone app that does this test some time next year.
