Data Analysis on U.S. Broadband

This was my final project for Brown University’s Data Science course, and I worked in a group with 3 other classmates.

The purpose of our project was to pull in U.S. Census data and combine it with state and FCC-provided broadband deployment data to gain insight on trends in inequal American broadband availability and get a general sense of the state of deployment.

My personal role was performing a k-mean analysis on internet access choice in New York to find if the proportions of forms of broadband deployment could reveal the most economical way to build out networks and close the digital divide.
