Connection Speeds in Texas
Speed Matters has surveyed Internet connection speeds for 2 years now. Their results are available for download. However, you can also see each state up close and personal. Although their download speeds for Texas look right, their upload speed map is way off — it has most of the state uploading at 2 megabits or higher — can’t be right.
Their state ranking chart shows that Texas has moved from #37 in 2007 to #22 in 2008 — great news! It’s a little disheartening to see that the states in the top ten are much smaller. It makes sense that they could provide higher level connections if they don’t have the area that we do.
Interesting information, but with the glitch concerning uploads, I’m not sure how much credence we can put in it.
