In 2010 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) embarked on a project to accurately measure American broadband. The FCC appointed SamKnows, created a collaborative working group and the Measuring Broadband America initiative was born.
Fast-forward three years and the project has seen three reports published with a recorded positive increase in the level of performance being provided to consumers by participating Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
