Regional Map Overview

MoBroadbandNow publishes maps based on information provided by over 100 participating Internet Service Providers (ISPs) under non-disclosure agreements. Variation in maps between publishing cycles in a result of the data MoBroadbandNow receives.

Regional Planning Commission Maps

In addition to statewide maps, MoBroadbandNow has developed broadband service maps focusing on each of the 19 Regional Planning Commissions. Multiple maps were created for each RPC, as described below.

Service Maps: Like the statewide maps, these maps present the number of broadband providers operating within each region. 

High Speed Availability Maps: These maps present an overview of the broadband speeds that consumers can expect to have access to given the provider data available to MoBroadbandNow. Speed tiers are divided into three categories: 3 MBPS download/1.5 MBPS upload or Greater, Less than 3 MBPS download/1.5 MBPS upload, and Speed Data Unavailable. 

The speeds displayed on these maps include those reported by both wired and wireless broadband providers.  Wired broadband service areas are shown on top of wireless broadband service areas.  In many cases, this results in wired broadband service visually obstructing wireless broadband service.  This has been done intentionally, in order to take advantage of the finer spatial resolution of the wired broadband service data.  Therefore, in some of the mapped area, slightly faster broadband speeds may be available. 

Maximum Advertised Download Speed Maps: Like the High Speed Availability maps, this series is designed to give consumers an idea of what speeds they can expect to have access to given the provider data available to MoBroadbandNow.  However, unlike the High Speed Availability Maps, this series displays only the download speeds that providers are able to offer consumers and does not group multiple speeds into categories.

Maximum Advertised Upload Speed Maps: Like the High Speed Availability maps, this series is designed to give consumers an idea of what speeds they can expect to have access to given the provider data available to MoBroadbandNow.
