DALLAS — Houston and Dallas are the only two NFL cities with the second and third highest Internet speeds in the nation, according to new research by the Federal Communications Commission.
That’s thanks in part to Dallas’ excellent infrastructure, the study shows.
The study, released Monday, is based on FCC data showing that Internet service was available to over 50% of Dallas’ population between November and March of this year.
The average Internet speed for the Dallas area was 1.15 Mbps.
The FCC’s study, which compared the top two U.S. cities, shows that the fastest city to reach 100% Internet speed is Seattle.
That city also has the nation’s fourth highest average Internet speeds.
Dallas, the city with the nation and the world’s fifth largest economy, has the sixth highest average speeds and the highest number of Internet users per capita.
That was also the case in 2016.
Houston, Texas, and the University of Texas at Austin are second and fourth in the top 10 cities for the nation.
Dallas has the third highest average speed in the league, but it ranked just behind Houston on the list.
The top three cities in the study are Atlanta, Texas; Dallas and Nashville, Tennessee; and San Antonio, Texas.
“We’ve seen tremendous improvements in the past year in Texas and in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said.
“As a result, our data shows that Internet access in Dallas and Houston is getting better and better each year.”
The study’s findings show that the two cities with fastest Internet speeds have all moved ahead in the years that they have remained the top Internet hubs.
The Texas cities with high Internet speeds, according the study, are Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston and Austin.
The report is based mainly on data from the U.K. and France, but also includes data from cities in Europe and the United States.
The findings from the FCC study come as more companies are trying to connect to new areas of the country and expand their business.
AT&T and Comcast are the leading Internet providers in some of the fastest growing areas, while Charter and Charter Communications have recently started offering Internet service in places like Dallas.
Comcast recently began offering Internet access for a limited time in the metro Dallas area, but the company has not released any plans to offer more service.
Dallas and Austin have the nation a few spots behind the top five Internet hubs for fastest Internet speed, which was New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
Dallas’ Internet speed was just behind Dallas and New York in the second half of this decade, according FCC data.
The most recent FCC data showed that Dallas had the second highest average broadband speeds for the country in 2016, and it was also one of the top 25 fastest Internet hubs in the world in 2019.
The Dallas area is home to over 30 million people.
That is more than the U
