Snippet: Half of Americans Have Terrible Internet ☇

Shared on August 24, 2012

I’m not advocating faster Internet just so we can make more bloated web pages, but this is pathetic:

While the Federal Communications Commission’s Eighth Broadband Progress Report this week revealed that 94% of American households have access to “broadband” but 60 percent of those homes subscribe to the minimum broadband speed of 768 kilobits per second (kbps) — far less than the FCC’s broadband definition of 4 megabits per second.

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
