Spanish Fort is the 18th most connected city in Alabama ahead of Loxley and Stapleton, but behind Mobile, Daphne, and Fairhope.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

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

Approximately 93% of Spanish Fort 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 Baldwin County, approximately 23,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

Data Caps in Spanish Fort

Data collected by our research team shows that some of the common providers in the area use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial because subscribers view caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hr.
