Virginia Offers Fastest Internet in United States; Alaska Slowest

Virginia offers the fastest internet service in the country while the residents of Alaska get the slowest internet speed. Sadly, California does not feature among the fastest internet access states. The report “State of the Internet”, published by Akamai Technologies, would come as a surprise for many. The color-coded map shows the internet speeds in all the regions.

Internet users in the northeastern states enjoy fast internet speed. Residents in Arkansas, Alaska, Kentucky and Montana browse the web at nearly half the speed provided to internet users in Virginia.

The map provided by Broadview Networks shows average internet speed of 13.7 megabytes per second in Virginia. The internet speed in Delaware, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Washington D.C is also among the fastest in the country.

California ranks at number 20 in the report with average internet speed of 10.9 Mbps. The internet users in Delaware and Massachusetts enjoy an average internet speed of 13.1 Mbps.

The “State of the Internet” report released by Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Akamai Technologies also provides information about DDos attacks, Mobile Connectivity and IPv6 adoption across the country.

In Rhode Island, 55 percent users get above 10 Mbps speed, followed by Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The internet speed for users has improved by 61 percent year-on-year in Rhode Island. Michigan has also witnessed 101% improvement in the number of users getting above 10 Mbps speed.
