It is no longer just cable and DSL carriers that will be tested for broadband performance (and compared to advertised speeds?) by the FCC.
The US regulator announced that " .. The National Broadband Plan (NBP), developed by the FCC, made recommendations to improve the availability of information for consumers about their broadband service. The FCC has undertaken a series of projects as part of its Consumer Empowerment Agenda to realize this charge, including launching a broadband speed test app and, most significantly, undertaking a comprehensive effort—in partnership with industry, the public research community, and other stakeholders—to provide the first detailed and accurate measurements of fixed broadband service performance in the United States".
See "FCC: Cablevision has 'improved remarkably in a flight to quality'" - here.
"The FCC now proposes a program to develop information on mobile broadband service performance in the United States utilizing the collaborative model underlying the success of its fixed broadband program. As the Measuring Broadband America program has proven, the broadband performance data produced by the statistically sound methodology of the program allows comparisons and analyses that are valuable to consumers and spur competition among service providers"
