San Diego has plenty of internet options.

It doesn't matter if you are a techie or an occasional computer user, many people need to be in a city where there is connectivity all over. This is something that is becoming more common in many cities, but there are specific places where this is a priority. These leaders are setting the standard for connectivity, and if you value such area traits, moving to one of these places may be a good idea. Grabbing your moving boxes and contacting your moving company may be the best way to go in order to find the tech-friendly city that fits your needs.

Raleigh, North Carolina
The capital of North Carolina has plenty to offer to those who love having access to the internet. It is one of the top cities in the country for connectivity in the home, according to Forbes. It also has plenty of Wi-Fi hotspots and access to different types of internet options. The area is not a stranger to the information technology industry, as many companies call Raleigh home. Additionally, the sizable number of places of higher education may further aid the city as a staple for internet access.

Olympia, Washington
If you are planning on heading to the West Coast, plenty of options are at your disposal when it comes to wired cities. One of these may not be as obvious. Head up to the Pacific Northwest, and head toward Olympia. Washington's capital may be one of the best places to go for using the internet. If you like to download, or if you just want to use the internet more efficiently, the download speeds are quite high. The average for the city is more than 20 Mbps, CNBC noted. It isn't a huge city, so this may play a role, but you could be right at home if you want to avoid being overwhelmed by a major metro.

Atlanta
There are two cities in the Southeast on the list, and the second has nearly as many good options as the former. Atlanta holds great marks for connectivity. It has plenty of different companies providing access to the internet, so you won't run out of options, Forbes explained. It is also the home of many people who use the internet at home, and the report named it as the top in the country for that respect. Wi-Fi hotspots are quite common too, so be on the lookout if you want to take a break from the heat.

San Diego
Southern California also makes the list of places where people stay connected. Specifically, San Diego is a hot spot for internet usage. The average internet download speed in San Diego is more than 11 Mbps, CNBC said. The military presence in the city may play a role in these increases, but it may also be because of the area's popularity with the tourist population. Either way, that's not too bad for those who want to stay connected all of the time.

Baltimore
Another naval staple is the Mid-Atlantic. While Annapolis may have the large Navy base, Baltimore has the big city atmosphere. Not to mention, it also has quite an attractive internet landscape. Like Atlanta, it has a significant number of internet service providers, Forbes added. It also has a significant portion of its population who commonly surf the net, as well as many Wi-Fi hot spots where you can get away from your home or job to relax and surf the web. This may make what is already an attractive moving destination even better.
