The Federal Communications Commission today proposed to create a system for measuring mobile broadband service performance in the U.S. The FCC has already completed a similar test of wired broadband services, and is now turning its focus to mobile broadband. The FCC said that the program for wired broadband produced "statistically sound" data, which "allows comparisons and analyses that are valuable to consumers and spur competition among service providers." It wants to be able to offer similar knowledge and insight to consumers of wireless broadband services and the further push innovation between the companies that provide those services. According to the FCC, it already has the support of certain wireless network providers and the CTIA Wireless Association. It will discuss the issue in depth at a meeting scheduled to take place September 21, where it expects other stakeholders and public research agencies to join the discussion.
