Broadband Speeds Have Soared Under Net Neutrality Rules, Cable Lobby Says

The cable industry's top lobbying group has consistently claimed that the US' current net neutrality rules harm network investment and raise costs for consumers.

Yet that same group is now bragging about dramatic increases in broadband speeds and claiming that broadband prices are going down.

The NCTA - The Internet & Television Association - touted Akamai's latest State of the Internet Report this month in a post titled, "America's Internet speeds continue to soar."

"The US is now in the top 10 countries for adoption of Internet speeds over 15 and 25Mbps as well as the top 10 for overall average speed," the lobby group said.
