Laurel is the 43rd most connected city in Mississippi ahead of Soso, Stringer, and Ovett, but behind Ellisville and Heidelberg.

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

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

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

Speed test data suggests that internet performance in the Southeastern Baptist College area exceeds 25 Mbps, with averages in the zip around (79.8 Mbps as of our latest data.) This speed should be adequate for students in Laurel who want to stream HD video, share a router with roommates, and etc. That said, since these averages are calculated on openly available speed test data, they often trend lower than actual top speeds obtainable in an area. Use the zip search tool above to see the latest information on broadband internet options at a specific address.

Data Caps on Laurel Internet Plans

Many Internet providers have been moving to add "data caps" to residential Internet packages as of late. The trend is certainly true in the Laurel market, with Internet choices like Xfinity selling capped plans. It's not a major issue for most Internet subscribers, but it might affect subscribers that share the WiFi or "power users" who stream a large amount of HD or 4K video. For reference, an HD stream on Netflix consumes about three Gigabytes per hour, according to Netflix. Standard Definition (SD) content uses closer to 1GB/hour.
