Federal Communications Commission Votes to Upgrade Minimum Broadband Speeds

April 4, 2004

Recently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to upgrade the nation’s minimum broadband speed from 25 Mbps download / 3 Mbps upload to 100 Mbps download / 20 Mbps upload to better reflect the broadband needs of households.

The newly established benchmark follows precedent set in current federal grant programs supporting broadband deployment initiatives (such as the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program). CSAC supports this upgrade to the nation’s minimum broadband speed for a better, faster, more robust system of communication for the residents of California counties.

For more information, please see the FCC’s Press Release and Report.
