Internet Access in Gibson, Missouri
Information below is based on the FCC's bi-annual provider territory filings.

Broadband competition in the Gibson area is overall high, with most homes having 5-6 Internet service providers available in their area. Access isn't distributed equally — a surprising 48.44 percent of the population are limited to one or fewer options.
Considering broadband technology types rather than specific local ISPs, the two most prevalent service types are cable and fiber at most addresses. Fiber cabling is often built out as a replacement for phone line-based DSL. Replacing DSL telephone wires with fiber is commonly more affordable long-term than continually servicing outdated DSL infrastructure. Costs aside, fiber also allows dramatically stronger speed (1,000 Mbps as opposed to the 5–15 Mbps or so DSL allows).
Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Gibson's most widely available wired Internet options.
Besides the Internet options detailed above, Sparklight (formerly Cable One) provides a third option for Internet in 92 percent of Gibson. Wireless companies like BPS Networks and satellite providers like are also sometimes a good choice. However, the incumbent wired providers are usually a stronger deal so far as performance and price.

Data Caps Around Gibson
Data collected by our market research team shows that top ISPs in Gibson currently place some sort of limit on data use for their home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue lately because users see caps as a strategy to stop streaming services. Providers insist that caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
