However if the three largest metro areas, St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield are removed then the percentage of households with access to high speed broadband falls to only 65%. This clearly shows that residents of Missouri in rural areas are at a disadvantage. It is estimated that 1 million households in Missouri are located in rural areas, this is nearly half of the total households in Missouri.
The state of Missouri has 92 total high speed broadband providers, consisting of 44 ADSL providers and 18 cable modem providers. Other providers use Traditional Wireline and Fiber high speed line technologies. Missouri has 2 million high speed broadband lines serving 1.5 million households and 580,000 businesses.
There are 128 telephone exchanges in which no DSL Internet is available and cable modem access is available in only 267 out of the 689 exchange areas in Missouri.
