Which state has the fastest broadband?

Not all Internet access is created equal. What part of the country has the best connections?

That would be the Northeast, according to CDN vendor Akamai’s latest State of the Internet report. Of the ten states with Internet connections averaging 5Mbps or higher, six are located in that region: Vermont (5.8Mbps), Massachusetts (5.7Mbps), New Hampshire (5.6Mbps), Rhode Island (5.4Mbps), New York (5.4Mbps) and Connecticut (5.4Mbps).

But which state has the highest overall average? That would be Delaware, with 7.6Mbps.

Overall, though, the U.S.’s Internet speeds lag behind much of the globe, with its 3.8Mbps average placing it 22nd on the list.
