Internet access is also measured by the number of options for wireless internet providers available to residents of Champaign County, Illinois, and the U.S., at speeds of 4/1 Mbps and 25/3 Mbps. At the slower speed, the vast majority of the population of all three areas has access to three or more internet providers. At the higher speed, the number of provider options decreases; just over half of Champaign County residents have access to three or more providers at 25/3 Mbps, while approximately 40 percent have access to two providers.

The ability of Champaign County residents to access the Internet has become key in many facets of life. Internet access provides economic, educational, and social opportunities; having or not having Internet access has become not only a technological issue, but an equity issue.
