map showing internet speeds by state

just saw this and thought some here might find it interesting - results are generic, no "per ISP" info but still

How Fast Is Your State’s Average Internet Speed? New Map Purports to Have the Answer

A new map released Monday by a communications provider purports to show the which states have the fastest — and slowest — Internet speeds in the country.
Using data from Akamai’s “State of the Internet” report, Broadway Networks said the map’s darker green spots represent faster speeds while states colored in red and orange had slower speeds.

“It’s no surprise that the Northeast has some of the fastest speeds in the nation, while the Midwest and less populated states have generally slower speeds,” the company said in a release.
“It’s no surprise that the Northeast has some of the fastest speeds in the nation…”
According to Broadway Networks, the state with the fastest speed was Virginia at 13.7 megabits per second. In contrast, the communications company said Alaska had the slowest speeds at 7.0 megabits per second.

Interesting. I have a sustained 16-17Mbps speed and that's with lowly DSL thru an independent ISP.

Not to mention where you live. Illinois is shown as rather poor, but if you are near Chicago or other major cities, it's probably much, much faster. I'd assume the same is true for many other 'slow' states.

Comcast recently announced that it has increased Internet speeds for customers in almost all of its residential service areas in California, as well as select markets in Kansas, Missouri and Texas.

Performance (which is pretty much the entry level package in their standard marketing) is now 50 Mbps, up from 25 Mbps; "Blast" is now 105 Mbps, up from 50 Mbps; and "Extreme 105" has been bumped to 150 Mbps.

Unfortunately the PR also notes the changes impact all California customers (except those in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Isleton, Lodi and Rio Vista) - and I live in Santa Cruz County so no speed increase for now for me. However the CA average should continue to increase.
