[AT] Only 25Mbps And Up Will Qualify As Broadband Under New FCC Definition - Page 6

post #51 of 59
Yeah, so... then we just dont have our crap connections labelled broadband. News? I have 10/1, with 8/0.8 functional... so not terrible, but for $45/month off promotion, if I had a better (non-cable) option, i'd take it. This changes nothing like has already been explained in detail.

The obvious and most logical solution to that will be just to increase the DL speed by 1Mbps to make the cut.....Im sure AT&T are greedy but they arent stupid enough to get sued over 1Mbps

Working for them, and seeing how the networks are tiered and registered, it would take a lot to even get that done. They would have to roll out a new network rating algorithm on what speeds are available, and stable, at certain distances from the network boxes (dslams). Basically, they could just roll out a slew of new dslams, increase the profile ratings to meet the new standards, then adjust speeds accordingly. But that's about as likely as them simply putting out more dslams for areas that are already unstable due to overloading and poor network conditions.

All they'll do, is change the labels. Broadband will be for only the new broadband, and everything else will just be 'high-speed internet'. Unless that wording is covered under the new guidelines, it's fair game biggrin.gif

No no, thats helps the customer and would take several hours to get all the routers updated, both of which are things done when they are planned for, not as a kneejerk reaction.

They just won't call their 24 and under plans BroadBand anymore.

I do like this map though. I wish ISPs had similar maps of their coverage (similar to mobile providers) instead of having to enter in an address each time. Can make a difference when property shopping.


No way that map is correct
Source: live south of spokane and can only get 1.5Mbps (an area which apears to be yellow on that map)

Christ, I know how that is. We switched to Comcast for a week from Verizon DSL. It was "supposed" to be a significant improvement. But holy HMMMM. I was getting 1Mb/S anytime from 5PM-11PM!!!!!!!!!!!

It was truly painful and disgusting. Needless to say we switched back to Verizon DSL. Which is still horrible. But at least it's tolerable.

Irrelevant note: I also LOVE how satellite internet companies broadcast their download speeds as "Mb", knowing full well that the average person thinks it means Megabytes.

The whole industry in the U.S. is rotten. Rotten as hell.

I think in the end this tightens the grip of the larger ISPs if i have been understanding everything correctly.

All that has to be done is allow ISP's operating in a county with so and so population (e.g. 25,000 or less) can still use the old definition. Seriously. Think outside the box, my proposal isn't genius just common sense. Wish people would think about workarounds.

Many old LAN adapters and routers aren't able to push 100Mbps. Most people on Wireless N can't get that in real world speeds.


Postal Twinkie brings up a good point, broadband needs to be a Title II utility for there to be pole access.

Unfortunately the government would them have full control over it since it is in fact a utility. Or at least regulation. Utilities need to be rewritten to allow more freedom to the companies first.
