Just how rigged is America's broadband world? A deep dive into one US city reveals all

If you have to relocate, you can see where in the US has the best bandwidth. Some are major cities like Chicago, NYC, SFO, etc ...

But then there's Lenexa KS, Columbus OH, and other smaller cities.

This is a stark contrast to the rural areas where they can't string cable (too expensive) and unless the household makes a considerable investment... (100ft mast to house PtP microwave) ... you won't see it.

This is the largest irony in that many tout high tech, IoT farming, but don't realize the costs of setting up the communications...

Some would love to have something better than dial up or 3-4G (LTE) data plans for connecting house holds.
