section 706 sixth report
Section 706 Sixth Report
  • Adopted July 2010
  • Findings
    • Roughly 80 million American adults no not subscribe to broadband at home
    • Approximately 14-24 million Americans remain without broadband access capable of meeting requirements set forth in section 706.
  • Conclusion: broadband deployment to all Americans is not timely and reasonable
  • Therefore: FCC must take immediate action to accelerate deployment by removing barriers to investment and promoting competition
departure from past reports
Departure from past reports
  • Redefined definition of broadband from 200 kbps in both directions to 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream
  • Because of Data Improvement Act, now have to include demographic information for unserved areas and also an international comparison (soon to be forthcoming)
  • Determined broadband deployment through use of a model, Form 477, Census Bureau demographic data, and also consumer survey
slide3

Model (also used for National Broadband Plan) showed that 14 million Americans (in 7 million households) cannot get broadband that meets the benchmark

    • Found broadband to be available in a county only if at least 1% of households subscribe
  • Unserved areas: 1,024 counties
    • Tended to have smaller population, lower population density and lower per capita income than average—so unserved areas are more rural and poorer
customer survey
Customer Survey
  • February 2010
  • 35% (80 million) adults do not use broadband at home
    • 22% don’t use Internet at all
    • 6% use the Internet but do not have access at home
    • 6% use dial-up
