That's not based in any kind of reality.

100/100 minimum for sure. 

In our small neck of the woods, we are currently doing 250/250 for $45 and 1000/1000 for $60 no data caps. 

We have lost some grants on rural builds because "someone" in the census block claims they provide broadband.. Not hard to put an AP up on a tower and hit the current definition's upload speed. 

I get a chuckle when the providers tell the customer what they "need"...

At $50/month or less? 

Maximize number of households of all demographic groups.
