Cable Lobby Still Busy Hallucinating Broadband Competition

[NCTA: The Internet and Television Association] utilized a baseline definition of 3 Mbps downstream for broadband, despite the fact that the FCC redefined broadband as 25 Mbps down back in 2014 (a move the NCTA strongly opposed for what should be obvious reasons). Raise the bar to 25 Mbps, and the picture immediately gets less attractive, with two thirds of America unable to get those speeds from more than one provider. The cable lobby’s claims about dropping prices are misleading as well. While these uncompetitive providers often keep their advertised price the same, they’ve taken to getting their pound of flesh in other ways. – Karl Bode, DSL Reports
