This paper – the fourth in a series of MoBroadbandNow reports – presents an analysis of Internet pricing and speed data in order to better understand regional and county-level disparities in broadband cost and speed, and how broadband cost and speed correlate to economic and demographic factors, including median household income, population density and rurality, population change, and number of businesses. The report finds that when analyzing speed and cost, disparities continue to exist in Internet access in Missouri – across counties and regions, and between rural areas and urban ones.
