Codifying a sea change already under way in American technology, the Federal Communications Commission is set to release a 10-year plan that would make high-speed Internet the top communication network in the country. The FCC's proposal will reportedly include efforts to subsidize high-speed access for rural areas and an auction of broadcast spectrum for wireless devices. Hoping to catch up with other countries that have faster average Internet speeds, an initiative called 100 Squared would aim to have 100 million households using high-speed Internet at 100 megabits a second by 2020, versus an average of 3 to 4 megabits a second today.
