Broadband Internet Definition Changed

A new era of peace and prosperity is upon us! Remember how great things were after they changed the broadband definition last time? There was dancing in the streets, streaming content everywhere and unlimited access to porn. Wait....

The Federal Communications Commission today voted to change the definition of broadband internet in the United States. This change, passed by FCC commissioners by a 3-2 vote, raises the minimum download speeds for broadband from 4 Mbps to 25 Mbps and minimum upload speeds from 1 Mbps to 3 Mbps. If the speeds they provide don’t reach this standard then internet service providers cannot call those connections "broadband."
