Rosenworcel Proposes Higher Speed


FCC chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel (Wesleyan University) is proposing raising standards for what is considered “high speed” internet service.

Her suggestion is in line with plans laid out by the Biden administration for increasing access to high speed internet across the country.

“The needs of internet users long ago surpassed the FCC’s 25/3 speed metric, especially during a global health pandemic that moved so much of life online,” Rosenworcel said. “The 25/3 metric isn’t just behind the times, it’s a harmful one because it masks the extent to which low-income neighborhoods and rural communities are being left behind and left offline.”
