What we like

  • No data caps – Astound internet does not have data caps, so you don’t have to worry about added fees and throttling for going over a monthly data limit.

  • Whole home Wi-Fi – Sends Wi-Fi throughout your home for a convenient, reliable connection. Wi-Fi equipment is available to rent or included with select plans.

  • No contracts – Astound plans require no contract to get introductory pricing or special offers, so you aren’t locked into a long-term commitment.

Things to consider

  • Pricing and speeds depend on location – Astound’s internet plans in separate markets may be priced differently, even for similar speeds. Plus, the Gig 1.2G plans may not be available in all locations.

  • Channel lineup – Astound’s top cable TV package offers about 298+ channels, less that providers such as Verizon or DIRECTV that offer 425+ and 330+ channels respectively.

  • Price increases – When promotional pricing ends, the monthly costs can jump fairly far. For example, according to the Chicago rate card, the 1G plan is $155.99/mo. with a 12-month promo price of $44.99/mo.
