Distance learning is coming fast and it’s only natural that some cities and regions will be better prepared for this revolution in education than others.

To compare different cities’ preparedness, a school in Arizona called Grand Canyon University has compared 50 large cities in the country using metrics like the percentage of houses with computers and broadband internet, and public school spending.

According to their calculations, Virginia Beach is the second best city in the country for distance learning, behind only Seattle, Washington. The top ten is dominated by mostly western cities, with the only other eastern city in the top ten being Raleigh, NC.
