Don't think it needs to change? From 25/3? Telehealth and WFH would like to talk with you.
There's very few things more draining than a conference call with someone who's got a bad connection.

What should be the new minimum speed for "broadband" in the U.S.?
This is the list of past minimum broadband speed definitions by year
1999 200 kbps in both directions (this was chosen as faster than
2000 200 kbps in at least one direction (changed because too many service
providers had 128 kbps upload)
2010 4 mbps down / 1 mbps up
2015 25 Mbps down / 3 Mbps up (wired)
5 Mbps down / 1 Mbps up (wireless)
2021 ??? / ??? (some Senators propose 100/100 mbps)
Not only in major cities, but also rural areas
Note, the official broadband definition only means service providers can't
advertise it as "broadband" or qualify for subsidies; not that they must
deliver better service.
