FCC Releases Report on Measuring Broadband America
August 1st 2011 marked the release of an Federal Communications Commission (FCC) report, detailing the findings of a recent project to measure the availability and speed of broadband internet connections in America. This report can be found on the FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/measuring-broadband-america
Internet2, through the MeasurementLab (MLab) project, has worked to install and support the Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) for use in consumer broadband testing. Currently the NDT software serves as a backend to the FCC's Broadband Test on a national level using the MLab framework, and also provides valuable information to state level efforts including the eCorridors project for the state of Virginia, run by Virginia Tech.
