Overview of internet satisfaction and availability in Kansas

Kansas has fairly good internet coverage for the Midwest, especially in the northern and eastern parts of the state. Kansas City was the first Google Fiber city and other major providers quickly rushed in with their own high-speed fiber networks, building out from the Missouri border all the way to Topeka.

There are still some big gaps in wired coverage, especially south of Dodge City and near the Colorado border, but rural Kansans can still get internet access through satellite providers like Viasat, HughesNet, and Starlink, or through ground-based wireless networks like T-Mobile.

Internet providers received an average satisfaction rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars from customers in Kansas.

That ranks Kansas 9th nationwide for internet customer satisfaction.

Kansas FAQs

Which is the best internet provider in Kansas?

There are quite a few fast and highly-rated fiber providers available in large Kansas cities, including Google Fiber, AT&T, and EarthLink, which all have received high marks over the years on our annual customer satisfaction survey. These providers also all offer speeds up to 5,000Mbps, which is about as good as you’ll find almost anywhere in the U.S.

For those in rural areas, we recommend T-Mobile’s 5G Home internet if you don’t have any wired options. Satellite is also an option, but most satellite plans are much more expensive than T-Mobile internet.

What options are available in rural Kansas?

Rural areas in Kansas don’t typically have access to the high-speed fiber connections you’ll find in larger urban areas, and many areas have just a few choices when it comes to internet providers. Cable connections like Xfinity are still your best option if they’re in your area. If you don’t have access to any wired networks, you can always turn to satellite networks like HughesNet, Viasat, and Starlink, as well as terrestrial wireless networks like T-Mobile are still options.
