The study highlighted another massive divide we have in America. A Net Buildz spokesperson said:

This study highlights the obvious disparity in internet access across states, with some leading and others lagging behind. Interestingly, while some states in the Northeast boast excellent internet access, other Western states struggle, highlighting a significant divide. For instance, rural and remote areas in states like Alaska and Montana often face challenges with limited internet access and slower speeds compared to more urbanized regions." 

When all was said and done Alaska was named the worst state in America for internet access and quality. On the flip-side, Connecticut was rated as having the best internet experience in America with New Jersey and New Hampshire following closely behind. New York State has the 4th best internet in America.

It begs the question, with all of this power, what are we doing online? How are we spending our time?

  • The Hartford Courant says our most searched Halloween candy is the Almond Joy. 
  • WFSB says our favorite Christmas movie by search is "Home Alone 2." 

So, we're quite busy getting to the bottom of the most important issues in our country.

P.S. #1 in internet means we're tops in porn as well, they go hand-in-hand, or....
