Internet Access in Durant, Mississippi

The average house in Durant has access to about 3-4 Internet Service Providers, or "ISPs." In context, this is a good amount of choice compared with other cities. Competition of two or more providers in a city is correlated with more affordable pricing.

Viasat Internet is the most common option in Durant. close to one hundred percent of the Durant area can receive Internet service from them. HughesNet is also a common option, serving near one hundred percent of local addresses with Satellite Internet service. HughesNet's fastest plan for Durant is 25 megabits per second.

EarthLink provides a common second choice, serving Durant with 89 percent local availability and a maximum speed of 25 Mbps.

The data listed here is primarily sourced via FCC filings. Then, it is enhanced using privatized data sources and direct provider reporting to provide more detailed results than governmental websites. Address-level data isn't available for all providers. Information about pricing of specific broadband plans is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans every year. We've gathered 231 Durant Internet plans since 2014, with 21 Internet packages currently on the market in the area.

So, looking at the big picture, Durant's broadband infrastructure follows a pattern seen in many US metro areas: strong availability of cable and DSL, but limited options since most houses are limited to one company for either Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Broadband providers were started pre-Internet as cable TV and landline phone corporations. So, they use pre-existing wired networks on utility poles for delivering broadband service. Fiber Internet is growing as an alternative. While not all "Fiber" plans are true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 61.99 percent of the population has access to fiber Internet stretching at least to the street nearby.

Data Cap Issues Around Durant

Data from our researchers suggests that common ISPs currently use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue lately since subscribers see them as a strategy to discourage streaming, while providers insist data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the problem is video streaming, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
