About SocketWhat We Do
Socket is proud to be the largest local Internet provider and competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in Missouri.
Socket is a privately held company that provides business and residential customers a choice for telecommunications services. We combine the highest quality customer service with in-depth technical knowledge.
We've built a state-of-the-art network utilizing the newest and best technology to bring businesses a choice in local telephone providers. Our focus is to provide quick, personal attention and technical knowledge with a customizable selection of telecommunications services.
Our business services include:
Socket offers consumers the best value for local Internet services. Along with Internet connection options such as High-Speed DSL and accelerated dial-up, our customers appreciate the local, friendly technical support they quickly receive at no extra charge. To help make their time on the Internet trouble-free, Socket also provides its customers with many Internet tools and security features.
Socket also provides local home phone + Internet bundles in a growing number of Missouri cities, including Columbia, Jefferson City, Wentzville, O'Fallon and St. Peters.
Co-founders George Pfenenger and John Dupuy started Socket Internet in 1994. In the following years, Socket Internet experienced rapid growth throughout Missouri and various other regional states.
Company leadership established a proven record of success and growth by becoming one of the few Internet service providers to thrive in the 'dot-com' bust of the 90s.
In fact, the company was named three times to the Inc 500 list, which honors the fastest-growing private companies in America.
In 2004, Socket Telecom, an affiliate of Socket Internet, entered Missouri's local & long-distance telephone industry for businesses. Combined with their partner company, Socket Internet, business owners were able to choose to get both telephone service and dedicated Internet service from one local company.
An important part of Socket's mission is to continue to bring state-of-the-art technology to homes and businesses in areas of Missouri that do not have a competitive choice.
