Broadband Deployment Increases, But with Data Discredited, FCC is Careful About Claims Made

A press release[6] about the FCC broadband deployment data offers several other comparisons:

  • The number of Americans living in areas without broadband speeds of at least 250/25 Mbps fell by 77% since the end of 2016
  • The number of Americans living in areas with 250/25 Mbps broadband increased by 268%.

Why the comparison with 2016 as opposed to some other year?

Oh yeah, that’s when there was an administration change and all administrations like to claim credit for whatever measurable progress is made during their tenure.
