What is the definition of broadband?

As defined by the FCC, broadband access means download speeds of at least 25 megabits per second and upload speeds of 3 megabits per second. This is often referred to as speeds of 25/3. While this is the bare minimum speed for broadband, the majority of customers on RiverStreet’s network are expected to have speeds that significantly exceed the broadband threshold, with many of them even having even having speeds of 100/100.
