According to Akamai, internet connection speed averaged 14.2 megabytes per second (mbps) for U.S. internet users in the last quarter of 2015, considerably slower than South Korea (26.7 mbps) or Japan (17.4 mbps).
However, some states do have connection speeds faster than the national average. American internet users have the highest speeds in D.C. (a federal district rather than a state) averaging 21.3 mbps followed by Delaware and Rhode Island.
This chart shows average internet connection speed in U.S. states in Q4 2015.
