I think it’s about time to update this post (and this site in general), so here’s my current list of certification and some info about them. If you’re interested in the AV industry, I’d recommend working on some of these.
The FCC is updating the definition of broadband that I posted back two years ago. It’s gone from 4Mbps/1Mbps to 25Mbps/3Mbps. Windstream (and many other DSL providers) don’t provide broadband to most of their customers, nor did they with the previous definition.
I recently emailed the entire committee that was reviewing this bill. This bill did not pass but I think it pertains to a larger discussion – what is broadband and why are companies in 2013 still offering top speeds below this?
