Internet Access in Marks, Mississippi

Marks has only two major broadband network choices: coaxial cable (73.02% coverage) and DSL (84.05% availability). Coaxial cable Internet is generally provided by cable TV corporations, using their pre-existing coaxial copper television wires mounted on utility poles or buried in the street. DSL, similarly, is delivered via twisted copper phone wires. Most Marks neighborhoods and census blocks can access both cable and DSL from two alternating ISPs.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet are the most common Internet options in Marks.

Broadband competition for residents of the Marks area is strong. The average home has 3-4 providers to choose from. Access isn't distributed fairly, however. A notable 15.91 percent of the population still only have one option.

Remember that since FCC data is only processed biannually and only released six or more months after that, availability shown here may not be complete.

Aside from the Internet options listed above, AT&T Internet is another option to consider. They have Internet in 80 percent of the Marks area. Wireless options are available in the area. However, wired providers virtually always offer stronger pricing for the download speed. The majority of Marks residents have access to wired broadband.

Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Marks

Data from our market researchers suggests that common providers in Marks use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are disliked since subscribers see caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.
