  1. As I understand it, the FCC considers any zip code in the US with *one* broadband connection to have broadband available throughout. In addition, they define broadband as >=200kbps.

    So perhaps we cannot take too much comfort in this new figure.

  2. Mr. Sege,

    Non sequitur.
    1) These aren’t the “availability” figures, but actual subscribers.
    2) A jump of 34% is significant no matter what figures you’re using. >=200kbps does cut off modem callers. Yes, it woud be useful to get other breakdowns, but given a consistent definition, the growth matters.
