President Obama highlights Chattanooga's broadband service

Posted: Updated:

What do Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris, Cedar Falls, Iowa, Kansas City, Missouri and Chattanooga have in common? 

These cities are examples President Obama is using in his speech about affordable high-speed broadband on the White House's Youtube account.  

Mr. Obama not only compares these smaller American cities with other countries but also with larger cities within the U.S. 

The Obama administration wants to provide greater access to fast broadband service in towns and cities across the country by encouraging the Federal Communications Commission to remove legal barriers to competition by Internet service providers. 

The proposal is part of a series of measures President Barack Obama is rolling out before his State of the Union address next week.

Obama will be in Cedar Falls, Iowa, on Wednesday to detail his broadband plans.
