What is the best internet provider in Kansas City?

When comparing the various internet service providers (ISPs) available in the Kansas City, Missouri area, several stand out right away. AT&T, Xfinity, and Consolidated Communications all offer connections with download speeds up to or above 1,000 Mbps. Topeka residents also have access to Cox cable internet, which comes in close to gigabit speeds with download speeds reaching 940 Mbps.

Kansas City also has access to Google Fiber, which has excellent coverage downtown and also spreads to much of the surrounding area, reaching as far out as Lee’s Summit, Claycomo, and Olathe. For those areas with access, Google Fiber offers a fast, reliable connection that has great customer reviews.

Kansas City is a great location for high-speed internet, with broadband speeds available in almost every corner of the city and a huge selection of providers to choose from. One important consideration when choosing your ISP is that some plans are available only in certain areas.

For example, AT&T and Xfinity might both be available in your area and offer gigabit internet service. However, Xfinity’s high-speed cable is widely available, while AT&T’s high-speed fiber connections are available only in some of the areas they serve. AT&T’s fiber connection is also available in some areas like Independence, where Google Fiber doesn’t reach.

Make sure that the ISP of your choice not only is available in your area, but also offers the kind of connection you want. One of the great things about living in Kansas City is that you always have other options for broadband connections.

Availability and speeds displayed are not guaranteed and are subject to change.

Technology Type

DSL:

DSL provides internet service via phone cables and is up to ten times faster than dial-up service.

Cable:

Cable provides internet speeds faster than DSL through the same cables used for cable TV.

Satellite:

Satellite internet is widely available, but offers slower speeds due to a far-traveling signal.

Fiber:

Fiber relies on glass strands to relay digital code and is much faster than both DSL and cable.

Highest-rated internet providers in Kansas City

With so many options available for internet service, Kansas Citians can afford to be picky about their ISP. Since it’s possible to have multiple available providers offering similar speeds, customer satisfaction is an important factor to consider. A good place to start is our ISP customer satisfaction survey.

Google Fiber got the highest ratings of any ISP in our survey by far, coming in way ahead of larger nationwide providers. As the first city to get Google Fiber, Kansas City’s network also has great coverage, meaning that you can get Google Fiber almost anywhere in the city. T-Mobile also got high scores for its internet service.

EarthLink is the highest-ranked nationwide provider available in Kansas City, taking first place nationally for overall customer satisfaction. Spectrum came in third overall, with AT&T coming in close behind in fourth place. Xfinity also came in close in fifth place.

Here’s where the other national ISPs available in Kansas City stand in customer satisfaction:

  • CenturyLink came in eighth place overall in our survey, placing it just below average.
  • Cox finished neck and neck with CenturyLink, ultimately taking ninth place in the survey

 

Fastest internet service providers in Kansas City

AT&T offers internet at speeds up to 5000 Mbps

Google Fiber offers internet at speeds up to 5000 Mbps

EarthLink offers internet at speeds up to 5000 Mbps

Easy Internet Now offers internet at speeds up to 5000 Mbps

Again, it’s a tight race for the fastest broadband speeds in Kansas City. AT&T, Xfinity, Google Fiber, and Consolidated Communications all offer speeds of at least 1,000 Mbps, with Cox Communications close behind with download speeds up to 940 Mbps. If blazing fast internet is the main thing you look for in an ISP, there are a few other factors to consider, such as upload speed, reliability, and availability.

AT&T, Google Fiber, and Consolidated Communications offer gigabit connections over fiber-optic networks. This means that your connection will not only be fast, but also be much more reliable. No need to worry about your connection slowing down during peak hours. Fiber also offers symmetrical upload speeds, which makes it a good choice for livestreaming and video chat. If fiber connections are available in your area, it’s hands down the best choice for pure speed.

Cable connections have a few issues that fiber-optic networks don’t have to deal with. Lots of traffic in your neighborhood can reduce your available bandwidth, and upload speeds are much slower than download speeds. That said, there are still some incredibly fast cable options in Kansas City. Both Xfinity and Cox have cable internet that rivals their fiber competitors in terms of raw download speed. Also, while only part of the city is currently wired for fiber, cable networks reach almost every corner of KCMO.

Kansas City residential internet coverage

When it comes to high-speed internet in Kansas City, the most important factor is location. There are lots of providers to choose from, but not every provider is available in every area, and even areas covered by the same provider might not have the same available plans. For this reason, it’s important to confirm with your ISP that the plan you want is available in your location.

AT&T

AT&T covers almost all of Kansas City as well as most of the surrounding area. The important thing to remember when considering AT&T Internet is that not every kind of connection is offered in every area. Much of Independence, for example, is wired for AT&T’s multi-gigabit fiber network. However, if you’re in the West Bottoms or the Northlands, your only option from AT&T is DSL (though, fortunately, there are still fiber options from other carriers)

Xfinity

No other provider can beat Xfinity in terms of broadband coverage. The availability of its high-speed cable network is outstanding, and its speeds are on par with fiber-optic connections. Xfinity ranked a bit lower than some of its competitors in the area on our customer satisfaction survey, but it still got generally favorable reviews.

Google Fiber

Although Google Fiber isn’t making national news like it was in 2013, Kansas City still has the distinction of being one of the few cities (also the first) where you can access Google’s lightning-fast fiber network. Not every area of the city has access, so make sure you check your ZIP code to make sure that it’s available in your area.
