Broadview Networks has analyzed internet speeds across the country and found that those in Virginia experience the fastest internet speeds followed by Delaware, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Washington DC.

Other states that ranked highly included Washington, New Hampshire, Utah, Michigan and Connecticut.
