Daily Tech: Next month, the FCC will give Congress its national broadband plan, but Chairman Julius Genachowski is already revealing some of the plan's details. Genachowski says that at least 100 million U.S. households should have access to broadband speeds of 100 Mbps within the next 10 years.
Qwest Communications, AT&T and several other network providers have said that they won't be able to reach that target. However, Verizon thinks the goal is achievable. "[One gigabit per second] as discussed in current news reports is a lot of signal; typically enough for many massive business operations," Verizon noted in a statement. "But we could make it happen over the FiOS network without much trouble, should a market for it develop."
