The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday voted to change the definition of broadband to connection speeds of 25 megabits per second or higher, casting aside the previous standard of 4 megabits per second.
If speeds don’t reach the threshold, Internet providers cannot call the connection “broadband.”
Huge news from Washington. The US is currently 26th in consumer broadband speeds. Pretty shameful for the country that invented the Internet.
Let’s hope some public shaming from the FCC will push Internet Providers to step up their games.
