Internet Access in Albany, Louisiana

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Albany. HughesNet is also widely available.

Since most houses come pre-wired for one phone company and cable networks don't generally overlap, the average home in Albany has 2-3 wired Internet providers available to them (2.79 per census block). 10.41% of the Albany area have one or fewer options for their Internet provider. DSL and cable broadband services are likely to provide the best pricing for home use.

The data listed here comes from provider coverage reports, and is against private data sources to create more granular resources than governmental websites. Speed and pricing data is generated thanks to our data team, who collect thousands of plans annually.

Spectrum provides a common second choice. They offer virtually one hundred percent local availability and a top download speed of 940 Mbps.

In summary, Albany's broadband Internet infrastructure follows a common pattern in Louisiana cities and towns: widespread access to cable and DSL Internet service, with the caveat that most houses or apartments are limited to one provider for subscribing to either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Internet outfits have their roots as cable television and phone corporations. So, they already own these pre-existing copper networks for delivering broadband Internet service.

Internet Statistics 2021

500 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Albany is the 187th most connected city in Louisiana ahead of Tickfaw, but behind Springfield, Livingston, Hammond, and Holden.

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

Approximately 1,000 people in Livingston Parish don't have access to any wired internet.

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

Approximately 90% of Albany 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 Livingston Parish, approximately 2,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Cap Issues Around Albany

Data from our market researchers shows that many of the top providers in Albany use data caps for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since consumers see them as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming services, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
