Broadband Slooowww in Abq

A report of broadband speeds in cities with more than 500,000 residents puts Albuquerque fourth from the bottom ahead of technology hotspots Oklahoma City, Fort Worth and El Paso.

Albuquerque's broadband speed is 537 kilobytes per second. Austin, Texas, long since beyond having Albuquerque as much of a rival, is fastest with 841.

Google Fiber, a network being tested in Kansas City, Kansas, offers 125,000 kilobytes per second.

The story was in today's Wall Street Journal, Page A7.
