Freeport is the 678th most connected city in Illinois ahead of Forreston, Davis, Pearl City, and Pecatonica, but behind Lena.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 5,000 people in Stephenson County don't have access to any wired internet.

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

Approximately 84% of Freeport 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.

In Stephenson County, approximately 9,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

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

Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Freeport

Data collected by our research team suggests that many of the top ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a strategy to discourage streaming, while providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
