The FCC recommends that the country adopt and track the following six goals to serve as a guiding light for broadband over the next decade:
• At least 100 million U.S. homes should have affordable access to actual download speeds of at least 100 Mbits/s and actual upload speeds of at least 50 Mbits/s.
• The U.S. should lead the world in mobile innovation, with the fastest and most extensive wireless networks of any nation.
• All Americans should have affordable access to robust broadband service and the means and skills to subscribe if they so choose.
• Every American community should have affordable access to at least 1-Gbits/s broadband service to anchor institutions such as schools, hospitals, and government buildings.
• To ensure the safety of the American people, every first responder should have access to a nationwide, wireless, interoperable broadband public safety network.
• To ensure that America leads in the clean energy economy, all Americans should be able to use broadband to track and manage their real-time energy consumption.
