Internet Access in Sheffield, Illinois

Consumers have access to 18 Internet providers operating in Sheffield. 5 of these are mobile LTE companies.

Looking specifically at the broadband technology options within Sheffield, there are essentially two primary options: cable (Mediacom Cable, for example) and DSL (think Frontier Communications).

Competition between broadband providers for residents of the Sheffield area is relatively high. The average resident has about 3-4 providers to choose from. This choice isn't always distributed fairly, however — as a surprising 38.89 percent of area residents still only have one option for wired broadband service.

We should note that since FCC availability data is only tallied up twice annually and only made public six or more months after filing, availability shown here may not be complete. This page incorporates direct provider reporting to help fix this problem.

Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, covering practically one hundred percent of Sheffield residents. HughesNet, in contrast, is available to near one hundred percent of the population. The fastest speed recorded for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. Any speed over 10 megabits per second (Mbps) will be sufficient for streaming lower-quality SD video over WiFi, but is likely to become problematic for large households or bandwidth-intensive services like video chat and multiplayer gaming. You can explore our Internet availability map below to see how Internet options compare down to the census block level in Sheffield.

  • There are 17 internet providers in Sheffield with 9 of those offering residential service
  • Sheffield is the 509th most connected city in Illinois ahead of Tampico, but behind Princeton, Walnut, Kewanee, and Toulon.
