Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Jefferson City's most widely available wired Internet providers.

CenturyLink is also a commonly available broadband option in Jefferson City. They offer DSL and Fiber service in 95 percent of the area. Stimulus Technologies is another alternative wireless service for practically one hundred percent of Jefferson City, although it has to have roof access and line of site with a Stimulus Technologies access point.

In summary, Jefferson City's broadband infrastructure follows a common pattern in US towns and cities: widespread availability of cable and DSL, but limited options since most houses are stuck with a single company for setting up either Internet service. This pattern results from the fact that Internet companies were started pre-Internet as television and landline phone companies. So, they already own these existing networks to deliver their broadband services. Fiber service is growing as an alternative, and while some "Fiber" services aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, 67.60 percent of the population has coverage by fiber reaching as far as the building property.
