FCC may give the country’s broadband deployment a big F

John Moe Apr 20, 2011

The FCC’s yearly 706 report on how well broadband providers are deploying broadband services to Americans. Last year was the first time in years the agency said broadband was not fast enough and not reaching enough people. It’s likely the agency will find the same thing in its report this year. Republicans aren’t too happy about this finding – in part, it’s the 2010 report that helped the FCC make its net neutrality rules that the House Republicans voted to dismantle. It’s not clear when this report will be released – it’s in circulation now.
