The publication's readers tested their connections for nine months using a proprietary link.

Midcontinent Communications, also known as Midco, provides cable in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin and claims it can deliver 100Mbps downloads with its MidcoNet Xstream Wideband service.

"While our testers didn't see quite that level of service, the average was 24.7Mbps down/4.4 Mbps up, giving it an index of 20.6, well ahead of everyone but Verizon FiOS," PCMag.com reported.
