With all the modern technology that requires us to be connected to the internet, it's crucial to have the fastest speeds available. While Texas' infrastructure continues to be questioned, internet speeds are not an issue, especially for the Texas town nicknamed Key City with its second-fastest internet in the entire United States.

The folks over at All Connect analyzed MLab speed test results as well as information from the FCC National Broadcast Map for the percentage of residents with access to certain internet speeds in each city.

As you might have guessed with my Key City clue up top, our very own Abilene has the second-fastest internet speeds in the United States. Surprised? I know I was. The only city in the U.S. that tops Abilene is Clearwater, Florida.
