Data Caps in Elgin

Internet providers have moved to add data "plans" onto residential Internet packages recently. The trend holds true for the Elgin market, with Internet companies like Xfinity adding capped plans. It's not a large concern for most customers, but it can affect users that share their connection with household members or "power users" who download or upload a lot of 4K video. Data caps on cable bundles are usually in the neighborhood of one Terabyte. This is a problem for fewer than one percent of customers. Potential XFINITY from Comcast customers in Elgin are advised to verify data limits before signing up. Do not assume them based soley on statements online.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Elgin

Internet too slow

I'm having problems with internet speed since Thursday (01-14-2021). I pay for 200 Mbps but I get 40 Mbps.

Future Link IT is great.

It is nice to finally have a provider where we get what we pay for.
