Some broadband better than others...

Regarding ATT, do they actually tell you the speed you will get? Whenever I see their ads they seem to always use "up to" verbiage. Does the FCC then rank them based on the "up to" number?

I'm not defending ATT here but since they seem to be toward the bottom of the rankings. Is that because they are truly advertising speeds they never deliver or interpretation by those creating the charts?

it is too bad the big telecoms are one of the primary shareholders of the US Government.
