eSolutions Benchmarking

SNG’s eSolutions Benchmarking (eSB) provides the data points clients need to understand the econometrics of broadband and maximize the benefits of investing in digital infrastructure and expansion of smart community technologies.

With the empirical evidence that SNG collects and actionable planning intelligence we develop for communities and regions, we help our clients make evidence-based and data backed decisions, build buy-in, and build an action plan focused on outcomes that engages the community and providers to:

  • Address gaps in digital infrastructure availability and utilization without raising taxes, nor taking on unsustainable debt
  • Grow the market for digital infrastructure and drive network sustainability by driving demand for smart community services and online business applications
  • Identify opportunities to implement smart community services, telehealth, elearning, that pay for themselves and enhance local quality of life

SNG takes a holistic approach to assess both current and future demand at a granular level, coupled with examination of current and potential supply-side solutions. We believe this is the basis for communities and regions to address the economic and social challenges from investing in broadband, smart community technologies, and necessary digital infrastructure for their future.

Does your community need better broadband? Is your region’s infrastructure meeting the needs of local institutions, businesses, and households? How can you maximize the community benefits and economic impacts from your broadband investments? SNG helps you uncover all of this.




Each and every eSolutions Benchmarking initiative includes a full report, an eStrategy go-forward report, and access to your data. Here are some examples of our work that have been publicly released.













Digital Economy Analytics Platform (DEAP)

The easier it is for our clients and their stakeholder groups to gain intelligence from their data, the more value that data has for them. This is why SNG has invested in the Digital Economy Analytics Platform.

Our Digital Economy Analytics Platform puts all the data from SNG’s in-depth analysis reports at your fingertips in a secure Web-based tool, allowing you to run your own queries and reports. Identify where, how, and by whom broadband is being used to uncover gaps and opportunities to be addressed, comparing regions and industry sectors to uncover actionable information and insights. Broadband utilization and its measurable impacts can quickly be assessed along multiple dimensions of geography, user characteristics, and Internet technologies to identify where broadband is being used to greater or lesser effect.
