Frequently asked questions

Yes! Astound’s fiber rich internet is available throughout Chicago including  Edgewater, Hyde Park, Old Town, The Loop, Uptown, and more. View all of our serviceable areas.

Gigabit internet, which uses the DOCSIS 3.1 standard, can download data up to 1 Gbps, and upload data at 20 Mbps. Gigabit internet service transmits data up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) — or 1,000 megabits per second (Mbps). If you or your family loves to stream movies and TV while playing bandwidth-hungry games and downloading the latest apps on your smartphone — all at the same time — Gigabit service could provide a major improvement in network speed and reliability.

Today the average household has multiple devices tied to one Internet connection in the home. These devices can be smart home TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, printers, home security systems, appliances or game consoles. Higher Internet speeds will offer you an online experience that fits your lifestyle and needs. For the same reason you’d want the latest gadgets – you want the best experience for you and your family.

If you have Gigabit service (1,000Mbps), Gigabit is being delivered to your home. However, your modem has a Gigabit port and a small amount of bandwidth is used to connect you to the internet. Gigabit speeds are up to 940 Mbps because a small amount of bandwidth is used to make sure data is transmitted properly. This is expected and normal for residential gig service.

Yes, Astound Broadband delivers speeds up to 1200 Mbps, however, it is not available in all areas. 1200 Mbps is only available to new customers. Current customers can visit astound.com/1200/ to be contacted when 1200 Mbps speeds are available in your area. Astound will provide equipment to ensure customers have the capability to handle 1200 Mbps speeds in their home.
