The FCC unveiled a pair of new mobile and fixed broadband labels for consumers Monday that include information about price and performance. The agency’s goal is to help consumers make informed decisions about purchasing broadband, it said in a release.

The move is part of the FCC’s Open Internet transparency rules and though they are not mandated, they are “recommended” by the commission. Check out the labels below.
