The FCC reports that 94 percent of America has access to a fixed line broadband connection. That means in your home or at your local library, most Americans should have access to high-speed internet. But what does that mean? The FCC defines broadband internet as download speeds of 3 Mbps (Megabits per second). Use the maps below see what percentage of people in each have access to what internet speeds, and what those speeds actually allow you to do online. Will the access to these speeds fill the needs of Americans today, and will they be enough as the demand for data and web services increases?
The lighter the color on the map, the higher access that state has to that speed.
