Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook purchased Internet.org in 2013 and started an initiative “bringing together technology leaders, nonprofits and local communities to connect the two thirds of the world that doesn’t have internet access.” Google has it’s own plan to bring broadband internet to the unserved and underserved around the world. Elon Musk of Telsa and SpaceX fame does as well.
Beyond the myriad private companies, there are hundreds if not thousands of organizations and governments around the world trying to get not just internet, but high-speed broadband into those on the wrong side of the digital divide.
The U.S. government, through the FCC, is pushing hard on broadband. At Broadband.gov you can browse through over 86,000 Google-indexed pages with the term “broadband” on them.
On January 29, 2015, the FCC, as part of its 2015 Broadband Progress Report, dramatically increased the importance of the term “broadband” by voting to change its definition from speeds of 4Mbps/1 Mbps to 25Mbps/3Mbps. The result is a tripling of the number of US households without access to broadband.
The race is on to deliver broadband, not just any-speed Internet.
