Dial-up Services have been Discontinued

Please be advised that on December 31, 2011, the Missouri State University dial-up modem services were discontinued on all campuses.  New high speed technologies, such as cable modems and DSL, have made these types of dial-up technologies obsolete.  Consequently, maintaining this equipment was no longer practical from financial and information security perspectives.

If you used the University‚Äôs dial-up service, please move to a commercial Internet service provider. ( has comprehensive lists of service providers for both dial-up and broadband Internet access.  If it is available in your area, broadband Internet will provide a much richer experience and is strongly recommended.  To locate a broadband service provider you can visit, a government web site maintained by the NTIA and FCC.

Missouri has also received Federal grants to expand on broadband coverage in rural missouri.  Please check for information on these exciting projects.  Specifically, their mapping page is an excellent tool to locate broadband providers anywhere in Missouri.
