Who Has Speedy Internet in the USA?

Internet speeds are so slow in the USA. But what about within the USA? Not surprisingly, they vary a great deal.

Not only do they vary but how they vary tells us some important things about factors that go beyond monopolies. One good source of information is this article from last year in Gizmodo which breaks the country down by congressional districts and then cross-references that data with income and population density.

One thing pretty clearly are the higher rates in areas of greatest population density. Montana seems to be in a particularly sad place.

More from Talking Points Memo.
