Internet Access in Sycamore, Illinois

Information on BroadbandNow is calculated based on the FCC's bi-annual coverage reports. We also use direct provider coverage reports and other privatized data to enhance that data down to the census block level. Plan and pricing data on this page is gathered through our data division. BroadbandNow has collected and verified 493 Internet deals in Sycamore since 2014. Real-world speed test averages listed for Sycamore is based on the 4,422 speed tests shown in the tools below.

Taking a look now at network tech available in Sycamore, we see that the most common wired broadband Internet connection infrastructures are Cable (93.90 percent coverage) and Fiber (99.03 percent coverage). Television companies are where customers look for cable Internet, seeing as they can re-purpose existing coaxial TV cables — which already connect to most homes — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Local subscribers to cable providers like Xfinity overwhelmingly select it because of the combination of low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber is built on future-proofed Fiber-optical lines, which are made of hair-like glass strands which can transmit binary data as light. Some fiber connections switch to coaxial cables in the "last mile." Copper-based last mile connections slow speeds, but they are almost always a grade higher than regular cable or DSL.

Metronet is an alternative to the primary providers, serving Sycamore with a top speed of 1,000 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only option for Internet in Sycamore. For example, fixed wireless companies such as Intelligent Computing Solutions can reach 10 Mbps over direct wireless technology. Outside of residential Internet, there are also 6 providers in Sycamore selling enterprise and business products and services like T1. The small business providers listed above include every local provider with explicit business services advertised on their site, although some providers sell both home and business-class Internet.

The average Sycamore home will find 5-6 companies serving their address. Only 3.38 percent of Sycamore residents are stuck with one or fewer options for residential broadband.

According to the latest FCC filings and direct provider reporting, Viasat Internet and HughesNet are the largest telecoms in Sycamore in terms of coverage area. As the interactive maps below show, the more common providers frequently compete at addresses around Sycamore.

Sycamore is the 83rd most connected city in Illinois ahead of Genoa and Kingston, but behind Maple Park, Dekalb, and Cortland.

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

Approximately 4,000 people in DeKalb 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: 97% of people living in Sycamore 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 97% of Sycamore 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 DeKalb County, approximately 7,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

Data Caps and Video Streaming in Sycamore

Data collected by our research team shows that many of the common providers in the area place a limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since customers view them as a tactic to discourage streaming, while providers maintain caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the culprit is streaming video, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
