FCC's 'Broadband' Just About Enters 21st Century

Print comment Post Comments
The FCC has finally updated its definition of what constitutes the bare minimum of broadband speeds in the country. Redefined from the laughable, the inexcusable 200 Kbps for over a decade, the new minimum for broadband is placed at 4 Mbps for downloads, 1 Mbps for uploads.

"This is a minimum speed generally required for using today's video-rich broadband applications and services, while retaining sufficient capacity for basic web browsing and e-mail," the FCC said.

While it certainly is a welcome upgrade from an outdated definition, many Americans passed the 4 Mbps limit when Napster was still free.

Basically, yes, you could live with it, but no one's willing to go back.
POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
