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. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

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.
