The Verge has compiled a map of broadband access in the United States, painting a troubling picture for a country increasingly dependent on high-speed Internet service.

Now that the FCC has gutted federal net neutrality regulations, can individual states put up enough of a fight to preserve some sort of net neutrality — and maybe consumer privacy?
