Technet has just released its 2012 State Broadband Index. The new report, with principal author John Horrigan, “rates the states on indicators of broadband adoption, network quality, and economic structure as a way of taking stock of where states stand.”
This index is important for understanding the economic and technological competitiveness of different states. The top state is Washington, followed by Massachusetts and Delaware. The worst state was Arkansas, alas.
And of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that our “App Intensity Index” (from The Geography of the App Economy) was used as one of the inputs to the index.
