US Broadband is Now So Bad……

That even in the phony metrics commissioned by the US incumbent carriers, the United States is no longer in first place:
The United States has lost the top spot in Nokia Siemens Networks' annual broadband development index, the Connectivity Scorecard, to Sweden.

The Connectivity Scorecard is, as Stacey Higginbotham reports for GigaOM, a favorite measure of the telecom industry, since it paints the America in a particularly favorable light.
It's gotten so bad that even when using the bogus metrics favored our the telco incumbents who took billions in government dollars and gave us nothing, we still cannot win.

It's time to stop bribing the monopolists, and start actually instituting real regulations that require real performance.
