Wednesday, March 17, 2021, 12 Noon ET — “Redefining Broadband’s Speed Limit”

  • When “broadband” was first defined by the Federal Communications Commission in 1996, it measured at least 200 kilobits per second (Kbps) in either direction. In 2010, the agency revised the definition to be at least 4 megabits per second (Mbps) download and 1 Mbps upload. Five years later, the agency upped the standard to 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up. That definition is already showing its age. Further, other states and federal agencies have other definitions. Is it time for a new broadband speed limit?

Panelists:

  • Jonathan Chambers, Partner, Conexon LLC
  • Tyler Cooper, Editor-in-chief, Broadband Now
  • Christina Mason, Vice President of Government Affairs, Wireless Internet Service Providers Association
  • Drew Clark (moderator), Editor and Publisher, Broadband Breakfast
