This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Approximately 99% of Barrington residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Barrington

Data collected by our research team suggests that some of the common providers use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming, while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Barrington

Limited Hot Spot use

As a Verizon wireless customer, if I pay for unlimited data then I should be able to use it as I please. But after 15 GB, they slow it down. I use my hot spot to stream movies and TV. Comcast Xfinity keeps pilfering me with fees and their rates keep going up.
