It’s official: Utah has really fast internet.
The Consumer Technology Association Innovation Scorecard recently ranked Utah as one of the top five states with the fastest internet speeds, placing it alongside Rhode Island, Delaware and Maryland in the top five.
Utah received an “A+” grade from the report. The average speed sits at 18,868 kilobytes per second in the Beehive State, which is an increase from 15,202 kbps in 2015, according to the report.
Idaho, which received an “F” grade, had an average internet speed of 10,407 kbps in 2016, the report said.
Idaho, Kentucky and Mississippi all earned failing grades for their slow speeds, too, the report said.
New York, New Jersey and Virginia also placed well on the list with “A” grades. Washington state received an “A-.”
