Broadband's not fast enough. You know it, I know it and the FCC knows it. Now the commission wants to do something about it.
A new draft proposal from the FCC would redefine "broadband" speeds to start at 25 megabit download and 3 megabit upload, an increase from the current standard of 4 and 1. These days that's just not cutting it.
In details it released to Ars Technica through a fact sheet, the FCC found "broadband is not being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion, especially in rural areas, on Tribal lands, and in U.S. Territories."
