Akamai's rankings are skewed by non-consumer high-speed internet
connectivity in the communities:
> Indeed, when you filter the list to exclude US towns with a major
> college in the middle of them, every US city on the list goes away.
> This also applies to other countries, of course; Norway's top entry
> on the list is Trondheim (average speed: 10.6Mbps), home to the
> Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The UK's top entry is
> Oxford. South Korea's top city, Masan, also has a couple of colleges.
So, no basis to use this report to claim U.S. consumer broadband
penetration is high.
