Top Ten Points from National Broadband Plan, Ch. 2

The US National Broadband Plan has been released. The document runs to 300 pages, so we thought that it would be a good idea to break the document down into bite sized chunks. Every day, we are going to serialize the chapters that relate to Optical Fiber and Networking. First, the “top 10 points” and then a follow up article with our “top 10 insights.”

Main Goals from Chapter 2 of the National Broadband Plan

  1. 100Mbps D/L – 50Mbps U/L goal for 100 million households by 2020
  2. 50Mbps D/L – 20Mbps U/L goal for 100 million households by 2015
  3. Lead the world in Wireless network capability
  4. Make 500Mhz of Wireless spectrum available by 2020
  5. Make 300Mhz of Wireless spectrum available by 2015
  6. Ensure every citizen has access to broadband, at a price they can afford
  7. Aim for an adoption rate of over 90% by 2020
  8. Every anchor institution such as schools and hospitals should have a minimum 1Gbps broadband service
  9. Create a national wireless first responder emergency network by 2020
  10. Every citizen should be able to monitor their power usage on a Smart Grid energy network
