Question DetailsAsked on 9/27/2014

what options do rural customers have for internet service in Madison Mo.

I live in rural Madison Mo. and have searched the web for providers with little or no luck. Windstream doesn't have internet here but has it 1/4 mile away. Dish Network said they don't have it here . These are 2 of the 4 that showed up on the search. One other said no service available as well. Hughes net is the only option I see. I've had them before and would rather not go that route.

Google this search phrase for local providers -

Madison, MO internet service


Generally, your choices will be independent ISP's (a few are listed there), all your nationwide phone carriers who provide service in that area (though be cautious about usage limits and per-GB costs for wireless phone-connected service), almost all local landline phone companies provide DSL service (internet over phone line), as do almost all cable and dish TV providers.

Just check out pricing and limits carefully, in some cases it can run amok, in others you can get it VERY cheap if bundled with digital TV and phone service, for instance.


From our personal family experiences, my personal opinion - local landline phone company DSL can be good but don't expect too much expertise out of their tech support on complex connection issues, Verizon good if they would just not change their plans every few months, Time Warner Cable OK but a hassle to deal with and phone help poor, AT&T hopelessly lost and seem to make a specialty of trying to lose customers, dealing with Sprint is like making a deal with the devil.
