How fast is your internet download speed? The average US download bandwidth speed for PC Matic home users for 2016 is 22,383 Mbps. Your internet speed affects your browsing habits. Many folks with higher bandwidth rates take it for granted. They stream videos and music, perform quick research and check and interact with their social web sites with little thought (or buffering). Those less fortunate probably have some sense of envy of the higher speeds.
A look at the US geographic download rates reveals each state’s average speed. The data shows that the East and West coast states come in with the higher speeds. While, the sparser populated North-central and Midwest states lag behind the average. Higher population seems to correlate to higher internet speeds. Undoubtedly, the higher populated regions provide the economic environment for ISP’s to invest in the internet infrastructure.
