2010 Report on Internet Speeds in All 50 States
The results of this fourth annual Speed Matters survey of Internet speeds show that the U.S. has not made significant improvement in the speeds at which residents connect to the Internet. The median download speed for the nation was 3.0 megabits per second (mbps) and the average upload speed was 595 kilobytes per second (kbps). This was only on half of a megabit per second increase (from 2.5 mbps to 3.0 mbps) since last year. At this rate, it will take the United States 60 years to catch up with current Internet speeds in South Korea. And when compared to the rest of the world, the U.S. ranks 25th in average Internet connection speeds. Read the full report below and check out how your state stacks up:
