Last week I was all about the new MN county maps – created from data provided by the providers. This weekend, someone (from NEO Partners LLC) sent me their interactive map created from M-LAB speed tests.
The map shows served (faster than 25 Mbps download) and unserved (slower than 25 Mbps download) areas and tracks the following:
- Number of tests: 4,373
- average down: 46.64
- median down: 26.08
- pop: 16,361
- house: 8,200
It also tracks the local providers, average speed, median and number of tests done in their area.
The maps obviously requires locals to run tests. So some areas have better reporting than others. I invite folks who have had issues with the county tests to check out these maps and see if they seem more reliable.
