Internet access, computer usage and internet speed, New Hampshire tops all 3 categories!

August 14, 2012

New Hampshire leads the nation in internet access, computers in homes and internet speed.  According to the US Census Bureau, 86% of NH households are on the internet and 91% of NH households include at least 1 computer.  On average, 76% of US households are online.  See the raw data or pretty maps.

New Hampshire takes a back seat to only Delaware when it comes to internet speed.  In the 1st quarter of 2012, DE had an average connection speed of 10.2 Mbps.  That is only 9% faster than the average connection speed in NH according to Akamai.  The average speed in the US was 6.7 Mbps.  The average speed in the world was 2.6 Mbps.  NH’s average connection speed is remarkable considering the population density.  According to Wikipedia, the population density is 464.3 people per square mile in DE and 147.0 people per square mile in NH.

  1. Just wondering, but do Grafton and Croydon have internet?

    • wordpressandstuff permalink

      Certainly Grafton has internet. It has at least dial-up, satellite, T1 and DSL. It isn’t exactly an isolated area, you know. I don’t know much about Croydon but obviously it has at least dial-up and satellite. Google is your friend, though 🙂

      BTW, why mention these 2 low populated towns?

      • Because lots of libertarians tend to be moving to those places.

    Oh. Why are lots of libertarians moving to Croydon? I’ve heard about Grafton.

    • Yeah. There is a libertarian settlement there called Bardo Farm.

        A settlement? That doesn’t sound like a big deal. More libertarians probably live in Windham.

  5. stop it permalink

    Claim to be a “free” state project, moderate comments on the internet.


    • wordpressandstuff permalink

      This blog has nothing to do with the free state project. It makes no claim to be a free state project. Nevertheless, I’ll comment on your point. With freedom comes responsibility. Freedom is not just about behaving horribly.
