Recently, several Internet service providers have balked at the idea of broadband service being reclassified as 10 Mbps by the FCC. Socket is not one of them.

Under current FCC definitions, broadband in the United States is defined as 4 Mbps. Any ISP seeking to build out a broadband network using government funding or subsidies must therefore provide speeds of at least 4 Mbps to the users they plan to serve.


Socket is happy to sponsor the Como Cyclocross series for the third year running - if you’ve stopped by our office on a Tueday night, you’ve probably seen them in action!


Cyclocross is a form of bike racing, where participants are required to quickly dismount and remount their bikes to get over hurdles, hills and any number of other obstacles on the track.  The series is 12 weeks long and starts in September each year.

Socket’s Fiber broadband just got even faster.

After the successful launch of our rural Fiber network in Callaway County, we had to add some much-needed capacity. As a result, we were able to increase our speeds tenfold to all of our current Fiber customers! Speeds now range from 100 to 300 Mbps – more than enough to satisfy even the heaviest Internet users, and up to ten times faster than cable.
