Cracking The Top 25

We found this post on a blog called Connected Planet interesting: Howard County apparently ranks 25th nationally in the speed our our broadband.

To get some feel for the range of speeds, the number one county on the list, Nassau County in New York, boasts a median download speed of 15.0 megabits per second and a median upload speed of 4.4 megabits per second. The number 25 county, Howard County in Maryland, had speeds of 10.7 megabits down and 2.8 megabits up, according to Craig Settles, a broadband consultant who works with local communities on broadband projects and who is a business partner with ID Insight on the Broadband Scout project.

In the greater metropolitan area, only Arlington and Calvert County rank higher.
