Alabama Internet Coverage & Availability in 2024

Alabama Internet Facts in 2024

  • Alabama currently ranks 24th among states in BroadbandNow’s annual rankings of internet coverage, speed and availability.

  • This means that roughly one in ten Alabama residents are not able to purchase an internet plan of at least 25Mbps download and 3Mbps upload.

  • This means that nearly seven in ten residents are not able to purchase broadband at a price of $60/month or less (excluding promotions and government programs).

  • This means that six in ten residents are unable to purchase a fiber internet plan.

  • The U.S. has more than 2,881 internet service providers, with most covering very small areas. It is worth searching by zip code to see who is available in your town.

At BroadbandNow, we advocate for a definition of broadband internet to be at least 100Mbps, as opposed to the FCC definition of 25Mbps, which would be considered slow for many internet-intensive activities.

In Alabama, 85.4% of people have access to 100Mbps broadband, ranking 41st among all states.

In fact, the five counties with the highest rates of residents with access to broadband speeds of at least 100mbps are in metro areas, including Jefferson (99 percent) and Shelby (97 percent) counties, which are both in the Birmingham metro area. Counties in the Huntsville, Montgomery, and Auburn areas round out the top five. On the other hand, Perry County, the state’s least populous, also has the lowest rate of access to high-speed broadband.

Internet Availability by County

In Alabama, 45.4% of people have access to 1G broadband, ranking 44th among all states.
