In Mississippi, 98.4% of individuals can get high speed Internet at speeds of up to 10 Mbps download speed, via wired or wireless Internet. However, a startling 41% of those living in Mississippi have no Internet connectivity, the highest rate of those with Internet in the country.

Yet, statistically the state seems to have options available. 100% of Mississippi residents can get wireless Internet. 87.3% can get DSL service. 67.8% can get cable Internet. 21.5% of the state even has fiber Internet as a choice.
