This was originally posted in our external articles forum but we felt it's an important enough of an ongoing effort to not fall off the front page. Broadband standards in the US are falling behind and the US is facing emerging issues from every direction from data caps, (soon to be) monitoring and lack of consistency between advertised/reported speeds and what is actually accessible by the end user. These days the FCC is beleaguered from all sides but you can do your part to help.
