DALLAS (KDAF) — More and more businesses are taking their talents online, and on the same note, more and more people are leaving businesses to start up their own gigs on the internet.

Whether you’re making arts & crafts, selling unique clothes, offering up your services, or simply just making boatloads of cash doing your own thing on the world wide web, one thing is essential, the internet. Recently, CenturyLink released a report of the top 10 best cities in the U.S. to start an online business.

Believe it or not, the Lone Star State is calling online business owners’ names as three cities have been ranked in the top 10 in the country.

“Today, online businesses are popping up more and more, making entrepreneurship more accessible for many. Although starting an online business is relatively convenient, there are specific needs that must be accounted for, such as finding an internet provider that delivers adequate internet speed and broadband coverage for business operations. In some US cities, accommodating these needs is easier said than done,” the report says.
