Mapping US Broadband
I've only taken a cursory glance, and I did what every U.S. viewer is going to do: zoomed in on my home turf.
Which was pointless, considering I already know the situation. Asymmetric DSL and Docsis 3.0 are widely available. Fiber to the end user isn't; you have to take the two-hour drive out to Sacramento.
What's more interesting are the reports and analysis. At a very cursory glance, I found one interesting tidbit: Guess which state has the highest number of providers that offer download speeds of at least 3 Mbit/s and uploads of at least 768 Kbit/s.
Remember, we're talking abut number of providers, not subscriber volumes or availability levels. The answer almost looks like a typo.
The map is running slowly today, especially as you zoom in. But if you've got a few minutes, give it a gander. Use the message board to tell us what you find surprising (or not) about the results.
