Federal Communications Commission

Federal Communications Commission, The Federal Communications Commission wants to know just how fast (or slow) your broadband connection is. It is seeking consumers across the country to volunteer as participants.
The first FCC’s “Measuring Broadband America Report” examined service offerings from 13 of the largest wireline broadband providers using automated, direct measurements of the broadband performance of thousands of volunteer broadband customers during March 2011.
The study measured speed and performance as broadband is delivered to the home so that different service providers and technologies could be compared scientifically.
It found that the majority of service providers were delivering performance approaching or exceeding the levels they advertised to their customers. It also identified Internet Service Providers that fell short of advertised speeds.
The FCC says that a few months after the report was released, it noticed a “significant improvement” by a major ISP.
