INCOMPAS Releases New BroadLand VIDEO: The Broadband Race

WASHINGTON DC (August 2, 2021) – The global race for faster broadband speeds is on, and the United States has some catching up to do. In a new video<https://youtu.be/JY-fSdcDYpM> released by the BroadLand USA<https://broadlandusa.com/> campaign from INCOMPAS (the internet and competitive networks association), runners from China, Europe and the UK highlight gigabit speed goals being set around the world. But as other nations build faster speeds, the United States remains in the slow lane with 25/3 Mbps.

INCOMPAS has called on the FCC to raise broadband benchmark speeds to a gigabit standard, and has advocated for infrastructure funding from Congress to invest in faster speed networks built for the future, that can be deployed and made available to local communities as quickly as possible so we can compete with the rest of the world.

In addition to the video, Mignon Clyburn, BroadLand co-chair, released the following statement:

“The race for faster speed broadband is a race that will define the future. Kids, families and small businesses need future-focused networks that deliver both speed and affordability, and they need them now. China, Europe and the UK have all raced ahead of the United States with gigabit goals, and policymakers must break free of the past quickly or get left in the dust.”
