Broadband access in America still stinks, according to a new report from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). How much does it stink? Around 34 million Americans don’t have fast enough internet.
The FCC wants US internet providers to give customers benchmark speeds of 25 Mbps for downloads, and 3 Mpbs for uploads. Apparently, about ten-percent of the population still doesn’t have access to those speeds. “While the nation continues to make progress in broadband deployment, advanced telecommunications capacity is not being deployed in a reasonable and timely fashion to all Americans,” the report states.
