that's a pitiful target. the US used to be the leader in broadband; now we're hoping the govt will develop a plan to give people 20th century speeds at high prices.
The sad part is that this broadband plan is about investing in grandfathered technologies such as DSL.

Actually something like low latency 3/1 available at an affordable cost to 99% of U.S. households should be one of the two main goals of the national broadband plan. The other equally important goal should be actual competition rather than comfortable duopolies because that's what is going to lead to the higher speeds. If both goals are met our country won't fall behind the rest of the developed world.

No, it should be fiber to 99% of the population. That we would guarantee us being ahead of the rest of the world, and the innovator of new IP services.
