Delaware Internet Coverage & Availability in 2024

Delaware Internet Facts in 2024

  • Delaware currently ranks 1st among states in BroadbandNow’s annual rankings of internet coverage, speed and availability.

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

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

  • The U.S. has more than 2,934 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.

Delaware, with 97.3% of people having access to 100Mbps broadband, ranked 8th among all states.

Internet Availability by County

Delaware, with 96.4% of people having access to 1G broadband, ranked 3rd among all states.
