FCC wants minimum broadband speeds at 100 Mbps

As the Federal Communications Commission prepares to deliver its broadband plan to Congress next month, the commission has established a goal for the minimum broadband access speed: 100 Mbps. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said during this week's National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) conference that the agency's proposed "100 Squared Initiative" is designed to deliver 100 Mbps to 100 million homes. Yet details on how that might be achieved are scarce. During his address, Genachowski cited Google's plans to launch a 1 Gbps pilot open access FTTP network initiative as one example of how the U.S. can reach its goals. Article
