Want to know where your state ranks in the big broadband picture? The key author of the TechNet State-by-State Broadband Index, a report that ranks states in broadband adoption, network quality, and broadband-driven economic outcomes, breaks it down for you.

John Horrigan, currently VP of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, completed this report after recently leaving TechNet. Last week he participated in a special rountable of national experts discussing research on broadband and economic development.

Listeners pick up valuable insights to how leading states are using broadband to increase small business creation, job growth and tax revenues, as well as influencing social changes among constituents. Horrigan's observations help communities with their broadband planning for next year.
