FCC Still Defines Broadband As - Faster Than Dialup

I've got DSL and I don't have broadband. It is a 300k connection. Several years ago that was not bad. Now it sux. Forget about streaming anything. Even utube videos have to be paused. It takes over a minute to load the HBO page.
Like the title says, they still think broadband is anything faster than dialup and that's wrong.
I have done many speed tests and never gotten over 300. Tested at the FCC site just now. Guess my connection got 10% faster because they are telling me it is 330k now. WooHoo
This is as good as it gets because my IP says there are no plans to increase the bandwidth. Little Texas town with an independent telco that serves a population of less than 3000. There is no hope for anything faster.
