The FCC has a website showing how fast they think your internet service is.
The reason it matters is because these numbers determine if a community qualifies for funding.
As you can see from Senator King’s letter, there is very little confidence that these numbers are accurate. They largely come for the Internet Providers. If you go on the FCC’s website, you can see they think all of Chebeauge gets equal service. And they think it is faster than many people get.
So, the important take away is that - the only real way to test speeds is from each house. Data that travels through old copper lines is subject to loss, depending on how far the signal has to travel and - how good the copper is.
