A 15-Year-Old Gixxer Is Still Faster Than The Most Advanced Modern Superbikes On The Track

  • 3 Mbps for fixed broadband and 2 Mbps for mobile broadband services in rural areas.

Providers must be able to comply with these threshold speeds within three years from the proposed measure’s effectivity date.
