Georgia Internet Coverage & Availability in 2023

Georgia Internet Facts in 2023

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

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

  • The U.S. has more than 2,963 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.

Georgia, with 93% of people having access to 100Mbps broadband, ranked 21st among all states.
