Freebee Friday: Need for Speed
Any school worth its desktops, laptops and projectors needs a top-speed Internet connection, and the results are in. Netflix, which streams video to millions, has tracked each ISP’s actual delivered bandwidth. The results are a little surprising and differ from a recent FCC report on bandwidth. The top marks go to Google Fiber (at 3.4Mbps), but it’s only available in limited locations followed by Cablevision’s Optimum Online (at 2.3Mbps), which is popular on the east coast but is also available in the mountain states. Next, SuddenLink, which has a footprint in the south and southwest, came in at 2.2Mbps.
