Fixing Bermuda’s internet: What if ISP’s had to guarantee minimum speeds?

It is no secret that our internet is rather appalling at times.  One of the more interesting approaches I encountered in my travels was in Hungary where ISP’s are legally required to advertise and adhere to minimum speeds.

Here’s an example: ISP’s advertise a 200 meg internet connection which has a minimum guarantee of 50 meg.  If they don’t supply the minimum they are subject to fines.  It keeps ISP’s honest and in my travels through Hungary I never saw the internet drop below the minimums.

Bermuda needs something like this.
