Akamai Q1 2017 reports Minnesota broadband speeds ranks 26 or 28 depending on the measure

The latest Akamai Report is out (Q1 2017). and actually Q2 is out too but I don’t have state info on that report. They measure worldwide broadband adoption and speeds. They used to look at average speeds by country and state. Now they are really focusing on security. BUT the folks at Akamai were kind enough to send me our stats – as we use to look at them and it turns out Minnesota is pretty middle of the pack – again.

Average connection speed – MN ranks 26 with : 17.6 Mbps

  • Minnesota average peak speed is 17.6 Mbps, which puts at rank 26. DC leads the pack with 28 Mbps. The top 12 states all have average speeds over 20 Mbps.

Average peak connection speed – MN ranks 28 with : 80.8 Mbps

  • Minnesota average peak speed is 81 Mbps, which puts at rank 28. Delaware tops with list with 110 Mbps. The top seven all have average peak speeds over 100 Mbps.

  1. Hi Ann
    I’m a little confused, but perhaps it is only a misplaced link. The link to Akamai below takes us to the Q2 security report, which is the only thing I’ve seen from them lately. Do you have a link to the “state of the internet” for Q2?
    Thanks!
