CenturyLink, ILEC industry groups say FCC's broadband definition is a moving target

By Sean Buckley

CenturyLink and ILEC industry trade groups wasted no time in speaking out against the FCC's new 2016 broadband progress report, saying that it does not take into account the amount of money service providers are spending to extend broadband services to more communities.

CenturyLink, which is in the process of rolling out 1 Gbps FTTP to businesses and consumers as well as 10/1 Mbps to rural areas via the second phase of the FCC's Connect America Fund (CAF-II), makes it challenging for service providers to comply with the regulator's standards.
