FCC Wants to Increase Some Internet Speeds

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will seek to bring Internet speeds of 1 gigabit per second by 2020 to community institutions such as schools and government buildings, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said. The FCC's National Broadband Plan is also expected to free up airwaves for mobile broadband, seek to increase universal access and adoption of broadband, and create a nationwide public safety network.
