  1. The Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has unveiled the National Broadband Map for the US.

    3Mb was counted. Map is inaccurate. One of the most common speeds in Canada and the US is 3mb down and 256kb up so maybe that's why. But they should be listening to what the FCC says.

    This map doesn't seem right to me... that map reflects maybe 20% of people having broadband.
