Feds find broadband speeds hitting -- and exceeding -- their targets
Think you're not getting the download speed your broadband provider promised? You might be right but a study by the Federal Communications Commission finds many providers are not only meeting but exceeding their advertised speeds.
That's a big improvement over 2011, when the first FCC survey found many providers not delivering the speeds they promised.
In the latest report, Verizon FiOS service averaged download speeds that were 118% of advertised download rates. Cablevision was at 115% and Comcast 103%.
