To start, you can search for service providers in your area, but we’ll also help you through deciding what service is best for you. 

Louisiana offers a selection of DSL, cable, satellite and even fiber-optic internet service plans, though the coveted speeds of fiber are hard to find in this state, unless you live in a city.

Learn about Louisiana internet

Louisiana residents have access to some of the most widespread internet service providers (ISPs) like Cox, Xfinity and AT&T. Louisiana also has access to some really great budget internet options, with some plans starting well below $50/mo. for sufficient service for low internet usage. The major ISPs will generally offer the fastest internet service, although, depending on where you live, you might find a great deal on a smaller, local provider.

Although the whole state doesn’t yet have access to internet services, the Louisiana government is pushing to make it happen in the coming years. Hopefully in the not-so-distant future, all residents will be able to surf the web.

Internet availability in Louisiana

Louisiana ranks on the low end when it comes to internet availability in the U.S. Because Louisiana is largely rural, not everywhere has great access and fiber internet is rare. That being said, over 80% of Louisiana homes have access to the internet and everyone has access to speeds of at least 25 Mbps. The most widely covered areas in the state are the large cities. Internet in New Orleans and Baton Rouge is reliable, with Metairie coming in as the most well connected. 

Unfortunately, some areas of Louisiana have no access to internet at all, including places like Acme, Lisbon and Hamburg. However, because technology is always changing, those smaller, rural areas could see connectivity in the near future.

Fastest internet in Louisiana

A few Louisiana internet providers offer gigabit internet speeds, which is great for homes that rely on a large amount of gaming or streaming, or if you are someone who works from home. However, keep in mind that because these fast internet speeds are commonly fiber, they may not be widely available. The fastest and most reliable internet service will be found in the larger metropolitan areas, though you will still find quality internet throughout the state. These service providers offer quality download speeds:

  • AT&T — Fiber network with speeds up to 1,000 Mbps
  • CenturyLink — Fiber network with speeds up to 940 Mbps
  • Xfinity — Cable network with speeds up to 250 Mbps
  • Spectrum — Cable network with speeds up to 200 Mbps

Cheapest internet in Louisiana

You actually have a few budget internet options in Louisiana if you’re not looking to spend much on connectivity. Keep in mind that these lower-priced internet plans will generally provide you with slower and less reliable service, but if you don’t need much more than a way to browse the web and check email, they should work fine for you. Take into consideration what you want to get out of your internet when browsing plans — sometimes the cheapest option isn’t worth it if it causes headaches because the download speed is so slow. Also keep an eye out for any added equipment fees or data caps that you might exceed and pay a hefty fee for.

  • Cox — $29.99/mo.* for up to 10 Mbps
  • Xfinity — $34.99/mo.* for up to 25 Mbps
  • Sparklight — $39.00/mo.* for up to 100 Mbps
  • SuddenLink — $40.00/mo.* for up to 100 Mbps
