The FCC has announced that they will be testing out the performance of mobile broadband in the Unites States, the goal of the tests are to improve the overall performance of mobile broadband in the US and also hold the various mobile carriers to their advertised download speeds.
The FCC has done this previously with normal broadband under their Measuring Broadband America Program, which has lead to ISPs actually starting to deliver the speeds they have advertised to consumers.
Now it is the turn of the mobile broadband providers, who will come under scrutiny the the FCC, and it will be interesting which ones are performing at their advertised speeds and which ones are delivery below what they advertise.
