Moving to the Sunshine State? Well, you couldn’t have picked a better place to set up your home. The clear sandy beaches and breathtaking scenery will ensure you wake up each day with a smile donning your face. And, you can visit Disney World whenever you want! It’s a privilege you get when you live near the home of Mickey Mouse, and a guaranteed way to put any sourpuss in a joyful disposition.

As great as it sounds though, the entire shifting process may make you question your decision again and again. After all, relocating to another state means you’re practically starting from ground zero. You may have to find a job, pick a neighborhood to live in, a school for your kids, and so much more. Not to forget essential services that you simply can’t make errors with—especially an internet plan which may also involve a contract.   

A fast and reliable internet connection can make all the difference. It can help lighten the brunt of your move to a new home, and make the process more manageable. While it’ll ensure you have a connection with the life and people you left behind, it’ll also provide you with the help required to set up your new life in Florida. The decision on which internet provider you should settle with is thus of utmost importance.

With so much going on, however, you’re sure to be short on time. Conducting in-depth research on the pros and cons of each provider serving your area can be difficult, but that’s where we come in. We’ve scoured the market to list the best providers Florida has to offer. Depending on which city you make home some may not be available—but in any case if you keep reading, you’ll have what you need to make an informed decision.

There you go! These are the popular plans you can subscribe to in Florida. Of course, offer availability and price can vary from city to city, but this should give you a good overview before you subscribe. If you’re wondering which plans may be the best, keep reading. Here’s our take on top plans:

The Fastest Internet in Florida

If you are a pro gamer who simply must have the fastest internet there is, then there’s only one option for you: The Gigabit Pro from Xfinity Internet. This fiber internet connection gives you 2000 Mbps speed—double that of any provider. Sure, it costs quite a bit at $229.95 a month with a 2-year agreement, but it’s the fastest there is after all!

If this doesn’t fit your budget, we’d suggest you consider a 1,000 Mbps connection. For all household purposes, it’d be more than enough.

The Best Fiber Connection in Florida

For households with multiple users and connected smart home devices, and an overall high level of internet consumption, a Gig service is what you need. And if you’re based in an urban center, you should have no trouble getting one for your home.

AT&T, Frontier, EarthLink, CenturyLink, and Windstream all offer Fiber to the Home connections—meaning 100% fiber-optic connectivity. Each of these providers offers a Gig service, as well as lower fiber internet speed tiers depending on network capability in any given location.

Before you pick one that is available in your area, do get an idea of the cost per Mbps, and also take into account the perks you get with the service plan. This way you will get a more accurate idea of the value for money each of these options is able to bring you.  

The Cheapest Internet in Florida

Looking for a mid-tier plan which gets you the best speed-to-cost ratio? Well, high-speed cable broadband from the following providers gets you exactly that:

But, again in order to assess the overall value for money any of these plans can get you, it is essential to weigh out all the benefits and perks, additional costs, length of the promo term, etc., and not only the speed to cost ratio. So don’t forget to do your homework!  

Internet with the Best Long Term Value

The cost of internet plans in most cases hikes after the promotional period expires—which is usually 12-month long. And if you’ve signed a contract, you can find yourself trapped. The way out is to try and pick a provider which does not make a contract mandatory—for instance Spectrum, WOW!, Windstream, and CenturyLink.

With CenturyLink Internet, you not only get rid of contractual obligations but get price consistency. There is no promo term and no hike in rates. You pay month-to-month—meaning you can cancel anytime without the fear of an Early Termination Fee. Plus if you go with high-speed DSL—speed tiers from 15 Mbps to 100 Mbps come with a Price for Life offer. An option that is greatly appreciated by subscribers who do not prefer to hop providers every now and then.  

To be fair, Frontier to presents a Price for Life deal, but the offer is limited to speeds up to 9 Mbps—a traditional DSL line worth considering only if you happen to be in a rural location with few options.

The Best Internet for Rural Areas

While very few counties in Florida are counted as “mostly rural” by the Federal government, some in are. If you happen to be relocating to such a rural community, choices are likely to be limited—but this is where the coast-to-coast availability of satellite internet from HughesNet saves the day.

A reliable option, albeit on the expensive end of the spectrum, HughesNet Gen5 gets you 25 Mbps fast download speed—which is adequate for average household usage in a smaller family. The data cap can be a put-off, but with soft data limits, no overage charge, and Bonus Zone data, overall HughesNet plans can prove worthwhile compared to an expensive and slow traditional DSL line.

Final Words

We hope you found this guide helpful. It includes the major nationwide providers operating in Florida with an overview of their popular offers.

Albeit, we’d recommend you check provider and offer availability before you narrow down your options. For this you can either run a ZIP search here, or speak to experts at 1-855-349-9328.

With that said, we wish to the best of luck with your move to the Sunshine State!
