Big cable companies have told the federal government that "now's not the time" to talk about US internet speeds; despite a new program that will pay them billions of dollars to expand broadband access across the country, and a new proposal that put even more money in their pockets.

Yes, it is the annual farce that is the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Broadband Deployment Report a Congressionally ordered report from the federal regulator that is used to assess how the US is doing when it comes to internet access.

US "Big Cable"
Actually my fiber-optic cable is pretty small, much smaller than it used to be when it was coaxial.

I've been following the saga regarding ISPs, Gov't and Movie/Content Providers. However, I think all that could soon be irrelevant.

My city & state keep promising 5g by 2020. My WiFi router supports 5g & most new mobile phones are poised to release 5g models. My next new computer will be an "always connected" 5g. The newer TVs all boast they support 5g (right now I get all my channels through WiFi.)

But basically the issue is wired or wireless and is highly reliant on where you live and what is available.
