FCC changes broadband spec


#1

[quote=", post:, topic:"]

The FCC has finally shifted the definition of broadband from 200kbps to 768kbps, probably not as high as it should be, but a vast improvement. The agency says they’ll also start tracking both downstream and upstream speeds and will scrap the zip code tracking methodology for more substantive census-track level reporting. Carriers still won’t be required to release data on the prices they charge for different speeds.
