FCC, during the course of its procedures, usually refers to broadband internet as a connection that delivers a speed of 4Mbps or more. However, many have argued that internet speeds have surpassed this threshold long before, and the regulatory body must redefine the threshold. And, the regulatory authority is now seeking user feedback to do just that.


While 4Mbps is not too low an internet speed, average internet speed in the U.S. has gone far beyond that with the inception of wireless technologies such as LTE and projects like Google Fiber. And that is the reason why FCC had been repeatedly asked to bump the minimum speeds in its definition of broadband connection.

Responding to these demands, FCC has now launched an ‘open season’ in which it is asking the U.S. citizens to submit their suggestions for its ninth Broadband Progress Report. On the basis of user feedback, the regulatory authority will decide whether or not it needs to redefine the speeds for broadband internet.

FCC is also seeking user feedback as to whether or not it should define the minimum acceptable cap for broadband internet, and based on this response will ask service providers to improve their limits. Many in the past have complained about too low caps from service providers and this move may help in getting quality services.

If you reside in U.S. and have any suggestions to offer on these issues or any other issue related to communications, you can submit those till September 20, 2012.
