Data Caps in Windsor

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that some of the popular providers place a limit on data use on home Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because consumers view them as a tactic for limiting streaming services, while providers explain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Windsor

Rise Broadband is great, if you have good line of sight with their equipment

We used Rise Broadband (previously Sky Beam) for several years. Worked great until this year. We live in a valley in Loveland and the trees in our neighborhood (and a mile from our house) are now too tall, causing interference and making the signal weak. Customer service is awesome and reliability was great until now. If you do not live in a valley would suggest you try Rise Broadband.
