Does the Internet suck in Durham, NC?

Recently we’ve noticed that sites load really slowly in our office at the center of Durham, NC.

Looking at the Google Analytics account for one of the sites we host, we discovered that the site takes 25.49 seconds to load in Durham, versus just 4.81 in Raleigh and 4.37 in Charlotte.

How can Durham claim to be a haven for start-ups and tech companies with download speeds this horrific? Screenshots from Google Analytics below.

Maybe Durham needs to learn from places like Chattanooga TN and Cleveland OH that now have municipally hosted 1GB Internet service.
