FCC Says Most American Broadband Connections ... Aren't

68 percent of "broadband" Internet hookups are too slow

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

A report issued yesterday by the FCC says that most of the connections sold to Americans as "broadband" are actually too slow to qualify for the name. Rick Karr is a correspondent for PBS's "Need to Know." He speaks with us about why American broadband connections are lagging so badly behind those found in the rest of the world.

Thanks for the segment on European advances on BROADBAND.

Now, can you do the same for HEALTH-CARE COSTS? I've heard that the USA has a vastly expensive total per-capita health-care expense but that a lot of lt is administrative, and that administrative expense is MUCH LESS in many European countries. IT SEEMS we run our health-care system as a GIFT TO PROFIT-MAKERS and AN EMPLOYMENT SCHEME TOP BENEFIT ADMIN FOLKS.

How about it?
