Internet Access in Jacksonville, Illinois

Data here is calculated based on the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage filings. Our data also includes direct provider reports and other privatized data to further validate the data. Plan and pricing data is collected by our data analysis team. To date, we've collected and verified 317 Internet deals for Jacksonville in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 1,923 records as of 2022. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Coverage from Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As residents might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is a common one.

Frontier Communications and Mediacom Cable can also provide Internet service in Jacksonville, often competing for the same customers.

There's above-average market choice between companies around Jacksonville. However, 4,000 residents can't get access to more than one provider. If these residents aren't satisfied with the quality of service, they are forced to use a low-speed wireless. Luckily, this issue isn't widespread in Jacksonville — the majority of households have 3-4 choices for Internet service.

Overall, Jacksonville's broadband infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other Illinois communities: strong coverage of cable and DSL, with the caveat that most residences are stuck with a single company for subscribing to either service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple cause. Internet providers were started pre-Internet as cable TV and phone corporations. So, they can use conveniently pre-built wired networks on utility poles to deliver Internet bundles.

Internet Statistics 2022

4,000 People Only have access to 1 or fewer wired internet providers available at their address.

This data is calculated from FCC datasets which providers are legally required to supply twice a year. We further validate this data for accuracy.

Internet Provider Competition Map For Jacksonville

Jacksonville is the 564th most connected city in Illinois ahead of Virginia, Waverly, and Winchester, but behind New Berlin and Ashland.

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

Approximately 3,000 people in Morgan 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.

Fiber Availability: 6% of people living in Jacksonville have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 82% of Jacksonville 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 Morgan County, approximately 10,000 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.

Internet Access for Education in Jacksonville

Illinois College and Macmurray College are the biggest universities in Jacksonville. For the 1,519 combined students living in the area, strong internet service access is a must for obtaining online course materials and viewing research. Students living surrounding Illinois College and Macmurray College are likely to be choosing between the major providers outlined above. Speed test records from the zip where both campuses are located show an average speed of 26.95 Mbps. Average download speeds can be different since they include household network issues, and the actual speed you can achieve shouldn't be less than 10–30% below the advertised speeds above. FCC and US Government reports often cite the need to improve internet availability for college and high school students. There is a positive correlation between increased high-speed broadband access and increased education/employment opportunities, especially in small cities and rural areas.

Data Cap Issues in Jacksonville

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that many of the popular providers use data caps for their home broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers view them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: video streaming, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
