By 2015, A Gigabit Broadband is Expected in All 50 States

During a meet of U. S. mayors in Washington, D. C. today, the Federal Communications Commission's chairman, Julius Genachowski, shared his views to install gigabit speed broadband services in all the 50 states by 2015.

He met various municipal leaders and service providers and asked them to deploy gigabit speed broadband in at least one community in each of the 50 states in a span of next two to three years.

He said if this target is met, very soon the Gigabit City Challenge communities would be transformed into major innovation hubs. And this way, a lot many job opportunities would be created for citizens.

It's been long that Genachowski has been always a supporter and promoter of faster broadband speeds. During his long career, he had always taken initiatives for installing the same everywhere.

In 2010, in the National Broadband Plan that the FCC presented to Congress, there was a goal set up by Genachowski to get 100Mbps broadband to 100 million households by 2020.

This has been now amended by the chairman to get speeds to 1 gigabit per second.

In comparison to the average present internet connection, 1Gbps means 100 times faster. And to achieve this, it is a quite expensive process. The overall infrastructure needs to be improved.
