Internet Access in Mobile, Alabama

4 Internet providers can provide service to the average Mobile address. This is actually a lot of competition contrasted with similar-sized cities. Competition of two or more providers in a city is correlated with lower regional pricing.

Since FCC data is only tallied up biannually and only released six months after filing, provider availability shown below may not reflect the most recent expansions. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help fix this issue.

C Spire Fiber is also a commonly available broadband option in Mobile, offering Fiber connections in near one hundred percent of Mobile.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet options in Mobile.

The takeaway is that Mobile's broadband Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Alabama cities and towns: strong availability of cable and DSL service, but only two choices since a majority of houses or apartments are stuck with one option for setting up either Internet service. This pattern has a simple reason. Internet providers are former television and landline phone companies, and use existing wired networks for delivering broadband Internet service. Fiber network access is expanding as an alternative. While some "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, virtually one hundred percent of the area is covered by fiber that reaches to the block.
