The only rule that could be put in place that would actually motivate a company to change would be to limit fastest speed advertising to the slowest speeds encountered by current customers.

If Spectrum Cable has 200Mbps speeds in an area, but several customers only get 20Mbps during prime time, then advertising should only read “speeds at least 20Mbps”. We had the “truth in lending” movement. We need the truth in broadband speed movement.

Don't let this distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, "Spare Tire" Dixon.

or the fact that in 1998, The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 ft through an announcer's table
