Fastest Internet Speed: See the top 10 cities and states

Internet speed-test company HighSpeedInternet has conducted three million tests in the United States alone, and ten of the fastest Internet speeds – and ten of the slowest – have been reported across both states and cities.

It has averaged across the United States by various suppliers.

The agency divided the 3M tests by state and city and calculated the average for each.

Some U.S. households have gigabit internet access, which makes it faster to stream movies to 20 devices simultaneously. Other households have barely enough bandwidth to stream a single YouTube video.

The top ten states are:

  1. Maryland – 84.1 Mbps
  2. Delaware – 80.9 Mbps
  3. New Jersey – 76.3 Mbps
  4. DC – 75.2 Mbps
  5. Virginia – 74.5 Mbps
  6. Rhode Island – 74.5 Mbps
  7. Massachusetts – 73.6 Mbps
  8. Colorado – 70.9 Mbps
  9. Washington – 67.3 Mbps
  10. California – 67.2 Mbps

Ten slow:

  1. Alaska – 20.6 Mbps
  2. Montana – 30.1 Mbps
  3. Maine – 30.8 Mbps
  4. Idaho – 30.9 Mbps
  5. Wyoming – 33.3 Mbps
  6. South Dakota – 33.3 Mbps
  7. Iowa – 35.8 Mbps
  8. Arkansas – 37.3 Mbps
  9. Mississippi – 37.9 Mbps
  10. Hawaii – 38.1 Mbps

The agency then did the same for cities. Fastest:

  1. Whitestone, NY – 138.4 Mbps
  2. Elkridge, MD – 114.0 Mbps
  3. Merrick, NY – 112.0 Mbps
  4. Odenton, MD – 109.9 Mbps
  5. Haletherp, MD – 109.0 Mbps
  6. Pasadena, MD – 108.3 Mbps
  7. Somerset, NJ – 107.8 Mbps
  8. Pacifica, CA – 106.5 Mbps
  9. Merchantville, NJ – 106.4 Mbps
  10. Long Island City, NY – 105.8 Mbps

Slowest:

  1. Stowe, VT – 7.3 Mbps
  2. Espaola, NM – 7.7 Mbps
  3. Willy Plate, LA – 7.8 Mbps
  4. Wananta, AL – 8.6 Mbps
  5. Kingston, WA – 9.2 Mbps
  6. Elco, NV – 9.5 Mbps
  7. Foley, AL – 10.1 Mbps
  8. New Richmond, WI – 10.2 Mbps
  9. Wasila, AK – 10.4 Mbps
  10. WASHINGTON, WA – 10.9 Mbps

The best supplier was Exfinity, the worst was Centurilink.

With the introduction of 5G, the average speed is likely to increase in both fixedline and mobile internet, but anything we see near blanket coverage in populated areas of the United States could be a few years earlier, and Gigabit 5G is only supported by MM Wave, which is extremely Limited to short-range and possibly long-term heavy trafficking sites.
