[Time:Techland] Which States Have the Best (and Worst) Internet Speeds? - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Only a couple years ago, the only non-dial-up internet option for friends of mine in Idaho was satellite. I'd hate to be in that situation.

I didn't quite catch how they did the study. I'm not skeptical of the results, just curious.

Just to clear this up, he thought I meant 30 mbps, not 30 MBps. He pays that much for 6 Mbps

I live in Northeast Kansas and get 3Mbps down/ 1Mbps up and pay $70 a month for it.... Of course I live in a town of 100 tho... My telephone company is supposed to be installing FTTH before winter, so that will be very nice. I just hope they don't gouge us and give us crappy internet with it...

I live approximately 10min from North Kansas City and I have to resort to satellite, because while there is DSL a mile up the road and down the road, there is none in my subdivision. And AT&T refuses to upgrade the phone lines from 1995.

But it's all good right now, 'cause college Internet is so freaking fast. On a good day, I can get up to 100Mb down; usually it's around 10Mb down.

Agreed. Even averaging their lowest tier, 30Mbps symmetric up and down should make it one of the fastest ISPs on that list. I have the 50 up/down service. It's incredible

Beat me to it


I live in a city of 120k people or so, on an interstate highway, with a military base about 1000 feet from my house.. I have 8Mb down/1Mb up. $45 a month.

6 months ago, I lived in FL in a town of 90k people 50 miles outside the big city. I had 10Mb down/3-4Mb up. $40 a month.


There's something wrong when you live near a military facility, less than 4 miles from an interstate and hundreds of yards from a US highway...and you have slower internet than a country town in FL.
