Mississippi and High Speed Broadband Access
The state of Mississippi is served by only 53 high speed broadband providers, with BellSouth being the predominant, traditional wire-line company. These 53 high speed broadband providers use ADSL, SDSL, Cable Modem, Traditional Wireline and Fiber high speed line technologies. There are only 584,000 high speed broadband lines in the state of Mississippi, with the majority of them being DSL lines. These lines serve 435,000 households and 148,000 businesses throughout Mississippi, in cities like Biloxi, Hattiesburg, Gulfport, Jackson and Oxford. Only 37% of households in Mississipi are high speed broadband subscribers.
Mississippi is ranked as the state with the lowest Internet penetration at 41.9 percent according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Nearly 48% of students who attend school in Mississippi go home to a residence without Internet access. Since Mississippi has a sparse population density, wired high speed broadband accessibility is quite low. Satellite internet's main advantage is that it can be used in rural areas where DSL and cable are not available.
