What state has the best 5G availability in the U.S.?

Answer: Illinois (followed very closely by Texas).

Opensignal just released the results of a new study of the state of 5G in the U.S., and some of the results might surprise you. When it comes to the availability of 5G, Illinois and Texas came in almost neck and neck for the top spot, with the former just barely edging out the latter. On the other end of things, Vermont took last place for 5G availability with a wide margin behind New Hampshire.

The study discovered a correlation between higher percentages of urban population and higher 5G availability — more cities = better 5G availability. It also found that every state except Alaska had a good 5G video experience, even if it was rated poorly for availability.
