Internet speed target set Canada-wide

CBC: All Canadians should be able to download a 3½ –minute song in 12 seconds and stream high-definition videos by 2015 under new national internet speed targets.

Canada's telecommunications regulator, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, expects all Canadians to have access to broadband internet speeds of at least five megabits per second for downloads and one megabit per second for uploads, the regulator announced late Tuesday. Those speeds must be actual speeds rather than advertised speeds, the regulator said.

The story is too old to be commented.
