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.
