Internet Access in Champaign, Illinois

Viasat Internet has the most availability in Champaign. HughesNet is also a common option.

The plans shown here are manually collected by our data science and research staff.

Xfinity and EarthLink can also provide coverage in Champaign, often competing for the same customers.

Most people in Champaign have two or more Internet providers available at a given address. The mapping tool below shows competition shifts around the city.

In summary, Champaign's Internet situation follows a similar pattern to other Illinois cities and towns: strong coverage for cable and DSL, but only two choices since most houses are limited to one provider for either service. This pattern has a simple reason. Broadband Internet providers started as cable television and landline telephone companies. So, they can use pre-existing wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet service. The area's average downstream performance is 7.50 percent higher than the Illinois average, accounting for all cities. Take a look at the user speed test data directly below for information about how local providers compare long term.

Data Cap Issues Around Champaign

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that some of the common ISPs use data caps on home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since users view caps as a tactic for limiting streaming. Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
