Florida FAQs

Which is the best internet provider in Florida?

Xfinity is one of the best providers in Florida because it not only has some very fast plans and a range of options to choose from, but it’s one of the most widely available providers statewide. Xfinity has the most flexible plan options—from 75 Mbps to 1,200 Mbps. Xfinity also generally has great prices, ranging from cheap internet options to deluxe Wi-Fi packages and bundle deals.

For those living in urban areas, there are even better options, such as Hotwire Communications, which boasts speeds up to 10 Gbps, and Google Fiber, which offers fast, reliable internet in the Miami area.

What options are available in rural Florida?

Much of Florida’s internet infrastructure is concentrated on the coasts, but more rural areas still have options. Xfinity is available in many rural areas of Florida, and there is widespread 4G and 5G coverage as well. If all else fails, the most remote areas of Florida can still connect to satellite networks like HughesNet, Viasat, or Starlink.
