New Mexico, slowest Internet in the union

PCMag has ranked states according to average Internet speeds (via GigaOM). New Mexico came in last.

And it’s been the best land-line Internet access I could get for the past 3 years.

Is there a correlation with New Mexico being one of the dumbest states (at 95.7, rank 46 of 50) with regards to IQ? One has to think about these things…
