The new Obama back national broadband plan that the FCC is carrying out is looking to give access to broadband up to 100Mbps in major cities and of at least 4Mbps everywhere. Some Senators has started asking the FCC is its plan is too modest.

Even with the speeds that the FCC is, proposing the US will still be far behind other countries when it comes to broadband access speeds. The FCC seeks to give 100 million homes access to 100Mbps speeds. However, that fast 100Mbps speed will only be offered in big cities, living rural Americans out.

Senator Daniel Inouye asked FCC chairman Genachowski bluntly, "What is the FCC's rationale for a vision that appears to be firmly rooted in the second tier of countries?" Genachowski stated that the speeds will be reviewed every few years.
