Union rates state 11th on its Internet speed

Despite California’s technological prowess, its Internet connection speeds lag, according to an annual report from the Communications Workers of America. California ranks 11th among states, with an average download speed of 6.6 megabits per second.

That’s a substantial improvement over 2007, when the average download speed was 3.1 megabits per second, according to the report, based on data from more than 413,000 Internet users.

Still, the Golden State lags states such as Delaware, Massachusetts and New York. Countries with the fastest Internet speeds were South Korea, Japan and Sweden.
