DSL service is the only wired network option that has widespread coverage within Callaway. As of the latest data, it's available to approximately 65.63 percent of residents. DSL service is delivered bytraditional landline telephone wires on utility poles. This is the reason it comes from traditional phone companies like Great Plains Communications.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the most common Internet choices in Callaway.

We should note here that since FCC data is currently collected twice a year and only published 6+ months after filing, providers listed in the results may not reflect the latest network expansions. Our process incorporates coverage data directly from some providers to help reduce the lag.

Being trapped with one provider isn't a problem for Callaway residents, seeing as there aren't any true broadband Internet providers. (At least, that meets a 25 Mbps and 3 Mbps upload performance benchmark.)

Aside from the Internet options listed above, Great Plains Communications is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in 62 percent of the Callaway area. Wireless options like satellite and mobile are commonly advertised, but the wired options detailed above virtually always provide better pricing. As shown below, the vast majority of Callaway residents can get service from some form of wired Internet.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Callaway

Data from our researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs in the area place a limit on data use on residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because users view caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming video, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
