2016 Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report

The 2016 Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report (“the 2016 Report”) contains the most recent data collected from fixed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as part of the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) Measuring Broadband America (MBA) program.

The maximum advertised download speeds amongst the most popular service tiers offered by ISPs have increased from 12-30 Mbps in March 2011 (when the program first launched) to 100-300 Mbps in September 2015. These increases are not uniform across access technologies and have been driven primarily by the cable industry, with smaller increases in fiber based systems.  Average DSL speeds have increased only slightly over these years and satellite speeds, over a shorter time interval, have remained constant.
