Internet Access in Dearborn, Missouri

3-4 Internet providers are available for the average Dearborn resident. In context, this is a strong amount of competition in comparison to other cities. Competition between more than two ISPs in a city often results in better regional pricing.

Taking a look now at network technologies installed across the city, the most widespread hardwired broadband Internet technology options are DSL and Satellite, with 76.43% and practically one hundred percent respectively. DSL Internet service is transmitted over phone lines on utility poles by corporations like CenturyLink that own copper phone wires. Compared to other copper-based networks, the twisted copper makeup seen in phone lines outputs lower speeds and bandwidth than newer wire types such as cable and fiber.

CenturyLink is a common second choice. They offer a maximum speed of 80 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only option for Internet for residents of Dearborn. For example, fixed wireless providers such as KC Coyote can achieve 10 Mbps or more using direct wireless technology.

Viasat Internet offers the largest coverage area for Dearborn residents. The company is accessible for near one hundred percent of Dearborn. HughesNet is also a common option, serving virtually one hundred percent of the area with predominantly Satellite service. The fastest Internet plan we've seen for HughesNet for Dearborn is 25 Mbps.
