    Default America's most Internet-friendly cities

    Forbes has done it again with its most wired cities in the US list. Atlanta tops the list with tech-savvy Seattle coming in second, and Raleigh, North Carolina, coming in third. Wondering how the results were tallied? Forbes looked at the the percentage of Internet users with high-speed access, the range of service providers within a city, and the availability of public wireless hot spots. So basically, when all is said and done, the results are based on factors pertaining to the Internet. Since Atlanta is home to the regional headquarters for AT&T, Verizon, BellSouth, and EarthLink, it's starting to make sense why this city beat out all of the Silicon Valley competition. Here are some of the other winners:


    1. Atlanta, Georgia
    2. Seattle, Washington
    3. Raleigh, North Carolina
    4. San Francisco, California
    5. Baltimore, Maryland
    6. Orlando, Florida
    7. Charlotte, North Carolina

    I'm shocked that Raleigh, NC beat out both Chicago and Washington, DC
