Overview of internet satisfaction and availability in Missouri

Missouri has amazing internet in certain areas, as well as some major gaps in places like the Ozarks.

You can now find multigigabit fiber plans in many other Missouri cities, such as St. Louis and Jefferson City.

Rural Indiana residents have fewer wired options, but can get internet access through satellite providers like Viasat, HughesNet, and Starlink, or through ground-based wireless networks like T-Mobile.

Missouri FAQs

Which is the best internet provider in Missouri?

There are several incredibly fast and highly-rated fiber providers available in Missouri 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 Missouri, 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 Missouri?

There are a lot of underserved areas in rural Missouri that have very limited choices when it comes to internet providers. Wired connections like Xfinity are still your best option if they’re available in your area. If you don’t have any wired networks that reach your home, satellite networks like HughesNet, Viasat, and Starlink, as well as terrestrial wireless networks like T-Mobile are still options.
