An FCC rule change could falsely obscure America’s embarrassing digital divide

[By MIT Technology Review]

FCC chairman Ajit Pai has a theory. He reckons that Internet access on a phone is as good as high-speed broadband access at home.

Now he’s looking into changing his agency’s guidelines, so that places in the U.S. with decent mobile coverage are deemed “connected,” even if broadband access is a no-go. If enacted, the sleight of hand could shrink America’s embarrassing digital divide, but would leave rural folks with tight data caps, low speeds, and less hope for ever getting broadband.
