LXer: The FCC Is Pushing A 'Nutrition Label' For Broadband Connections

Published at LXer:

A report last year by the GAO found that most consumers have no real idea what kind of a broadband connection they're buying. The report argued that caps, interconnection squabbles, throttling, and other line limitations make it virtually impossible for many consumers (especially the more Luddite-inclined among us) to understand what they're buying, or compare it with competing services. As a result, the FCC this week proposed a new "nutrition label" for broadband that would include not only connection speed -- but any network management, latency, usage caps, overage fees, or other conditions impacting the line.
