They say you learn something new every day. Well, we at NCTA want to help keep that adage true, so we’re teaching you about Urbanicity!
A city’s urbanicity is a numeric indicator of how dense its population is both inside and outside of urban areas. The less dense a country is, the harder it is (and therefore more expensive it is) to deliver broadband Internet. Today’s #broaddata points out that in spite of the fact that the US is one of the least densely populated countries (I’m looking at you, Alaska), the cable industry is still able to offer some of the lowest prices for entry-level broadband Internet.
