TechNet's 2012 State Broadband Index

"States are actively pursuing ways to use broadband to promote economic development, build strong communities, improve delivery of government services, and upgrade educational systems. The ingredients for meeting those goals are fast and ubiquitous broadband networks, a population of online users, and an economic structure that helps drive broadband innovation and investment in new broadband uses. Not all states have these ingredients in equal measure. In this report, the TechNet State Broadband Index rates the states on indicators of broadband adoption, network quality, and economic structure as a way of taking stock of where states stand. The ratings show that the top fifteen states are:
  1. Washington
  2. Massachusetts
  3. Delaware
  4. Maryland
  5. California
  6. New Jersey
  7. Vermont
  8. Virginia
  9. Utah
  10. New York
  11. Rhode Island
  12. Pennsylvania
  13. Oregon
  14. New Hampshire
  15. Texas

Nevada ranked 36th and Hawaii ranked 48th.

The report includes a profile of efforts to improve broadband connections in California.
