WHO’S THE FASTEST OF THEM ALL?

runnerLooked at one way, Latvia connects to the Internet faster than America.  So do Moldova, Lithuania, Romania, Bulgaria, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Slovakia, and Estonia. According to Speedtest’s Net Index, the United States comes in 26th in terms of broadband speed.

That’s one way of looking at it. Many Americans surf the Internet on their cellphones, and cellphone speeds are slower than Wi-Fi, bringing down the average rate.

Among U.S. states, Delaware has the fastest broadband service and Alaska the slowest. On a city level, Berkeley has the fastest. Measured by unique “IP” or Internet Protocol address, New York has the fastest service. More info here.
