There may be some quibble with the methods, but the FCC is at least
trying to honor their part of the "Broadband Technology Opportunities
Program" included in recent law. Because the various ISPs are reluctant
to publish real data, the FCC is asking subscribers to test/report their
broadband speeds so the FCC can compile their own maps. If broadband is
not available, there is a form to report that as well.

Requires Flash and Java; works from Debian & Iceweasel.

Thanks to the UF forum for the news.  --Don
