DSLReports.com – FCC: 68% Of U.S. Connections Slower than 3 Mbps Down, 768kbps Up

New data (pdf) from the FCC suggests that most consumers aren’t getting speeds that technically adhere to the agency’s new definition of broadband, which was recently changed to 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream. According to the study, more than two-thirds (68%) of the 90,963,000 U.S. broadband connections tracked were too slow down or upstream (or both) to technically qualify as high-speed service — not even meeting 3Mbps/768 kbps. 58% of connections measured (76,594,000 connections) were slower than 3 Mbps downstream. 49% of connections (65,942,000 connections) featured upstream speeds slower than 768kbps.
