Alexandria is the 301st most connected city in Alabama behind Ohatchee, Oxford, Weaver, Wellington, and Jacksonville.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 86% of Alexandria residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

In Calhoun County, approximately 9,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

Data Caps in Alexandria

Internet providers have decided to add data limits onto their residential broadband packages lately. This trend holds true in the Alexandria market, with ISPs like Sparklight advertising plans with data caps. This won't really matter for the majority of residents, but is liable to affect those who share the service with multiple other household members or "power users" who upload a large amount of 4K content. Caps for cable packages are usually about 1 Terabyte, which is a problem for less than 1% of customers. Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers in Alexandria should verify data caps before signing a contract, and not assume them based on online statements.
