Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Elgin

Data from our researchers shows that many of the common providers in the area use data caps for their residential broadband plans.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Elgin

Excellent Local ISP

Medicine Park Telephone Company is doing an amazing job providing low latency, high throughput internet in places that only had access to low-quality DSL before. I always get within 5 Mbps of what I pay for, and I am extremely satisfied with my fiber to the home service. It is a small miracle to get this kind of service in a rural community, and I am extremely grateful for them supporting the community like they do.
